Abstract:

Background: The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of osteoporosis in women who are in their premenopausal stage (35 to 45 years) of the Buldana district of Maharashtra.
Methods: A community-based cross-sectional study was effectuated in the Buldana district by conducting a camp. From the women attending around 1000 women of ages 35 to 45 were screened and collected information by using the framed questionnaire.
Results: From the cross-sectional study it is founded that 680 out of 1000 i.e., 68% of women are affected with osteoporosis. Most of the women (540) are from SC and ST communities. Moreover, 66.6% of women (666) face struggles while doing their regular activities.
Conclusion: The rise of osteoporosis during the premenopausal stage might affect the quality of life of the women and be inherited to their offspring genetically. Most Indian women are facing the same due to the absence of awareness about their physical and mental well-being. Hence it is a mandatory duty of the government to take necessary steps to safeguard the future of Indians.
