characterized by low bone mass with micro architectural disruption and skeletal fragility

density in post menopausal women who referred to Shahid Mohamadi hospital BMD center.
Methods: In this cross sectional study 404 postmenopausal women who reffered to Shahid
Mohammadi hospital, Bandar Abbas, Iran, were enrolled. T score and FRAX index were
calculated and demographic characteristics of the patients were collected. Data were
analyzed by SPSS, using logistic regression.
