Abstract:
Background and Objective: Obesity and osteoporosis are worldwide health problems that interact with each other. There are also affected by the menopause and dietary pattern. So, this study aimed to find the relation between osteoporosis, body weight and intake of protein, calcium and vitamin D in obese pre and post-menopausal women. Materials and Methods: One hundred and sixteen shared as volunteers in a cross-section study lasted for 2 years. They were divided into 2 groups, pre and post-menopausal women. All women were subjected to, clinical examination, anthropometric measurements and 24 dietary recalls. They were evaluated for bone mass density, biochemical analysis for serum lipids, calcium and vitamin D. Results: Osteopenia and osteoporosis were higher among normal-weight and overweight (non-obese) women compared to obese as well weakly associated with their serum lipids. The mean daily protein consumption was high as compared to recommended daily allowances (RDAs), especially among osteoporotic women. The mean daily intake of vitamin D and calcium was low as the lower level was noticed among the osteoporotic premenopausal patients. The means serum concentration of calcium and vitamin D were adequate. Conclusion: Data revealed that the prevalence of osteoporosis was lower among obese patients compared to non-obese women. Inadequate daily dietary intake of calcium and vitamin D was reported, however, physiological compensation maintained their optimal normal serum levels.
