Author(s): Umera Baba, Nilofer Khan and Dr. Imtiyaz Ali
The present study was undertaken to access osteoporosis status among postmenopausal women of Kashmir. The total number of 380 postmenopausal women above 45 years from randomly selected four districts i.e. Srinagar, Ganderbal, Anantnag and Kupwara were covered. A scientifically self-designed oral questionnaire as per requirement was used for collecting data in the present study. The present study explored that the level of knowledge/awareness about disease among postmenopausal osteoporotic women is being influenced by some of these socio-medical factors. The awareness programmes could go a long way in creating and improving awareness levels about the health issue, providing advice, guidance and counselling on nutrition related issues as well as supporting women on mental and emotional levels for better wellbeing and quality of life.
