Abstract

Objective: To collect the data of anthropometric measurement around District Bhopal, M.P and find out the relationship between BMI & BMD.
Method: This was a cross sectional study in which anthropometric data of 489 persons above the age 21 yrs. was collected, that included age, sex, height, weight body mass index and bone mineral density. Their relationship was evaluated.
Result: This study showed that obesity in females confers protection especially in postmenopausal group while in male obesity did not show any protection against bone mineral loss. Body weight does not correlate with B.M.D in males but it correlates in the females. Height correlated with B.M.D in females but it did not correlate in males.
Conclusion: BMI can be used as screening tool for selecting patient for quantitative estimation of BMD.

Keywords:
