Introduction: Osteoporosis is fast becoming a major public health problem in this part .The objective of
this study was to determine the magnituude of Osteoporosis among Middle Aged Women and to
associate this with Osteoporosis among Middle Aged Women with their demographic and Clinical variables.
Methods: Descriptive research design was used. The data collection included into parts. Demographic variables, Clinical
Variables & Standardized rating scale to assess bone mineral density.Sample size comes out A total of 131 middle aged
women who fullled the inclusion criteria were chosen as samples by using non-probability purposive sampling technique. The
study was conducted at Diagnostic centre of Raipur
Results: The data were analyzed and interpreted based on the objectives using descriptive and inferential statistics. Among
13=]' clients , 22% have normal T- score (< - 1.0); 51% have osteopenia ( - 1.0 to - 2.5 ) ; 36 28% have osteoporosis ( - 2.6 to - 4.0 )
and there is a statistical signicant association on prevalence of osteoporosis among middle aged women with their
demographic variables like age and type of family with T – score levels at 95% (P < 0.05).
Conclusion: Osteoporosis is an important public health problem leading to an increased risk of developing spontaneous and
traumatic fractures. Because of the morbid consequences of osteoporosis, the prevention of this disease and its associated
fractures is considered essential to the maintenance of health, quality of life, and independence in the elderly population.
Hence this study
