Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have risk factors for osteoporosis such as heavy smoking history, corticosteroid use, sedentary life style. Few studies have examined the incidence of bone loss in these patients and no studies have compared bone mass in men and women with COPD. The purpose of this study was to compare bone mineral density (BMD) of the lumbar spine and hip in men and women with COPD, and to compare patients with healthy subjects of similar age. COPD patients (m=68, f=36) and healthy subjects (m=28, f=28) underwent DEXA scanning (whole body, lumbar spine, hip). MANOVA interaction effects between group and gender were significant for lumbar spine BMD and T-score, and for total hip BMD and T score (p<0.05). Post hoc contrasts revealed healthy men had significantly higher bone mass than the other 3 groups. COPD men had higher total hip BMD compared to COPD women, but other comparisons were not different. COPD women and healthy women had similar bone mass. In conclusion men with COPD have lower bone mass compared to their peers (healthy men), while women with COPD have similar bone mass compared to their healthy peers. COPD patients are at risk for bone loss, thus increased attention to screening for osteoporosis is warranted.
