Abstract:
Purpose: To study preventative ways of minimizing suffering and accidents in women who have osteoporosis. Background: Osteoporosis is the most common metabolic bone disease and usually does not have any symptoms, unless it results in a breakage. In this disease, reduced total bone mass and bone formation make bones thin and prone to breaking. This disease is important because treatment is expensive and it causes a lot of pain, breakages, and can even cause death in the very sick. There is no cure for the disease, so information on the disease is important, such as the fact that it is more prevalent in women than men, mainly because the peak bone in women is less than in men, and also because women become deprived of estrogens during menopause. More than half of all women over 45 years of age show evidence of osteoporosis on X-rays, and so this disease can be identified as a major health problem, and according to statistics, more than 6 million Iranians are affected by it. Method: This project is a descriptive/analytic consideration. There were 250 test subjects, who were present in the clinics and identified they wished to participate in the project. The data was gathered using a three-part questionnaire (personal information-practice-amount of information) completed during an interview, and was analyzed using computer tools and ci- square. Results: The findings showed that most test subjects were 41-50 years of age, housewives, they had diploma degrees. Most of them had 3-4 children, weighed 61-70 Kg and were women on the decline. They expressed that their stature had been short. Data obtained also showed that awareness of ways of preventing osteoporosis as well as accidents for patients suffering from it was: good (23.2%), average (56.4%) and weak (40.4%). Also, 61.2% said they walked 2 hours a day and 29.2% said they spent 1-2 hours a day in direct sunlight (not including during cold and cloudy weather). 47.2% said they had not used oral tablets until now. Some personal information showed a significant statistical relationship with the amount of information. Significance: Regarding a significant statistical relationship between personal information and the amount of knowledge and practice of test subjects, Sissil wrote in 2002 that it is impossible to invert the fixed osteoporosis to the normal condition. Thus we can prevent osteoporosis developing in most people by encouraging them to do exercises that support stomach and back muscles, referring them to a physiotherapist, using analgesic drugs and pharmaceutical drugs to prevent bone mass loss.
