AIM: to determine the profile of vitamin D and parathyroid hormone (PTH) and the proportion of vitamin D inadequacy in a population of postmenopausal osteoporotic patients from a rheumatologic outpatient clinic. METHODS: a cross sectional study was conducted between October and December 2006 in the Rheumatology Clinic, Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital with osteoporosis confirmed by bone mineral densitometry (T score less than -2.5 at the lumbar spine or hip). Patients were excluded if there was a history of oral glucocorticoid treatment within 30 days, vitamin D supplementation, and have renal and/or liver function impairments. Forty-two postmenopausal osteoporotic patients aged 51-77 years old who had been postmenopausal for 5-28 years were included in this study. Vitamin D inadequacy was defined as the plasma levels of 25(OH)D less than 50 nmol/L whereas hyperparathyroidism was defined as the PTH level more than 69 pg/dL. RESULTS: vitamin D inadequacy was found in 61.9% of patients and 34.6% of them or 23.8% of total patients were also having high PTH level. There was an inverse correlation between 25(OH)D with PTH levels and positive correlation between duration of menopause and PTH level. Vitamin D inadequacy is common (61.9%) in postmenopausal osteoporotic patients who visited Rheumatology outpatient clinic of Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital Jakarta. CONCLUSION: the low concentration of 25(OH)D was correlated with PTH level and duration of menopause. This finding should be confirmed in a larger epidemiological study, either hospital-or community-based to assess vitamin D status among postmenopausal women in Indonesia.
