Lipid profile, postmenopausal, osteopenia, bone


Osteopenia is a term used to characterize bone density that is abnormal but not as low as osteoporosis. Bone densitometry T scores between -1 and -2.5 are used by the World Health Organization to determine osteopenia.
This study's goal was to assess the levels of HDL, LDL, VLDL, and TG in individuals with osteopenia. In this particular study, totaling 40 people, they were split in half between two groups. Samples taken from postmenopausal women were analyzed to determine their levels of cholesterol, (HDL), triglycerides , (VLDL), and (LDL).
A spectrophotometer was used to determine total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein, and triglyceride levels.
The results Cholesterol, TG, VLDL, LDL, and HDL of showed a non-significant variation between patients osteopenia and control group.
In conclusion, According to the presented results Cholesterol, TG, VLDL, LDL, and HDL do not affect by osteopenia.
