Objective To investigate the correlation of bone mineral density(BMD) in lumbar vertebrae and hips with physiological characters of postmenopausal women in Xi'an urban area.Methods Epidemiological investigations,including the factors related to development of osteoporosis,were carried out in 281 postmenopausal women.Their BMD in lumbar vertebrae and hips was measured.Results The correlational analysis showed that a negative correlation of BMD with age,years since menopause and number of viable births,but a positive correlation with years of menstruation,height,weight and body mass index(BMI).Results showed that age,years since menopause and number of viable births were significantly higher in osteoporosis group women than in osteopenia group and normal group,However,average menstruation period,years of menstruation,height,weight and BMI were significantly lower in osteoporosis group than in the other groups.Conclution There exist significant correlations of BMD of lumbar vertebrae and hips with age,years of menstruation,menopause period,number of viable births,height,weight and BMI of urban women from Xi'an urban area.
