Background: Low bone mass is a major health problem in postmenopausal women.
There is no general agreement regarding relationship between serum level of lipids
and bone mineral density.
Objective: This study was carried out to investigate the association between lipid
profile and bone mineral density (BMD) in postmenopausal women in Yazd, Iran.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 170 women
aged between 50 and 70 years old with menopause for at least one year from Yazd,
Iran, between March 2013 to September 2013. Association of lipid profile and BMD
were measured in all study participants.
Results: Among our participants 73 cases had lumbar osteoporosis, 17 cases had
femoral osteoporosis and 80 cases did n’t have osteoporosis. After controlling for
body mass index, there were no correlations between serum level of lipids and bone
mineral density of femur and lumbar bones.
Conclusion: No significant association between serum level of lipids and BMD of
femur and lumbar was found in postmenopausal women.
