Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Understanding the metabolic changes in women is one of the important ways to prevent and treat osteoporosis. To reveal the metabolic characteristics of 289 healthy women aged between 35-65 yr in Tae-An, Korea we evaluated the association between bone mass assessed by broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) using quantitative ultrasound 2 (QUS2) and various parameters such as age, body mass index, serum levels of alkaline phosphatase, calcium, phosphorus, parathyroid hormone, 25(OH)D, and urinary ratios of calcium/creatinine and deoxypyridinoline (Dpyd)/creatinine. Among the subjects, 3.0% were osteoporotic, and 40.9% were osteopenic. When the subjects were classified according to their years since menopause (YSM) and age, the prevalence of osteoporosis increased along with an increase of YSM and age. Bone turnover markers such as serum alkaline phosphatase and fasting urinary Dpyd/creatinine were significantly higher in the group with low bone mass than in the normal group. In summary, this study shows, by use of biochemical markers of bone turnover and QUS2, the prevalence of osteoporosis in women aged between 35-65 in Tae-An was 3.0% and the risk of low bone mass increased with the bone turnover markers.
