Abstract

Introduction: Osteoporosis is a chronic and progressive disease with a multifactorial etiology, making it one of the most prevalent metabolic bone disorders globally. Currently, osteoporosis is recognized as a potential public health concern. Each year, numerous individuals seek treatment for osteoporosis in various hospitals and clinics across Bangladesh. Aim of the study: This study aimed to assess the socio-demographic and clinical profile of patients with osteoporosis. Methods and materials: This prospective observational study was conducted at the Department of Orthopedics, Monno Medical College and Hospital, Manikganj, Bangladesh from January 2022 to December 2022. A total of 137 confirmed patients with osteoporosis were chosen as study subjects through purposive sampling. Data were collected using a semi-structured predesigned questionnaire and analyzed using MS Office tools. Results: In this study, 34% of participants fell within the 60-69 age group, and 30% were in the 70-80 years bracket. Predominantly, participants were female (71%), hailing from lower-class families (52%) with a notable family history of fractures (79%). About one-third (33%) completed higher secondary education, 28% were housewives, 49% were married, and 47% exhibited a normal BMI. Notably, half had a vitamin D status between 20-30 mg/ml, with 31% below 20 mg/ml and 24% exceeding 30 mg/ml. Conclusion: Over-aged females of middle-class families are mainly prone to osteoporosis. The prevalence of osteoporosis is higher among married individuals, even those with normal body weight. Lower levels of vitamin D may be a risk factor for these conditions.
