Abstract: The aim of this study is to analyse the osteodensiometric values – obtained using a DEXA device – on a group of postmenopausal women. The osteodensiometric data thus obtained are represented as T-score. The results obtained are shown in Tables 1-3 and in diagrams of Fig. 1-5.
After their analysis, the following conclusions were drawn:
a) Practically, it is impossible to establish a representative group in terms of osteopenia/osteoporosis for a local community, because the DEXA tests are not compulsory for the whole population.
b) the data obtained show that 55,55% correspond to some patients diagnosed with osteopenia, and 21,14% with osteoporosis;
c) in terms of osteoporosis, the most affected bone segments are the femoral neck (49,18 %) and vertebrae (46,51 %);
d) also, the results obtained show an inversely proportional report of osteopenia/osteoporosis with the patients’ BMI;
e) the patients diagnosed with osteopenia/osteoporosis suffer from various diseases (risk factors), but especially of thyroid diseases, diabetes mellitus and neoplasia;
f) the fact that 55,60% of the DEXA investigated subjects and diagnosed with osteoporosis have declared family history and / or personal medical history, leads to the supposition that a genetic predisposition can contribute to the onset of osteoporosis.
