Abstract
Objective
Osteoporosis is the most common metabolic disease of bone and constitutes one of the most important major public health problems not only in women but also in men. This cross-sectional study examined the association of lifestyle and diet with bone mineral density (BMD) in 386 Korean men.
Methods
Analysis of anthropometric parameters, smoking habits, alcohol consumption, physical activity and diet were assessed from a physical examination and interview. BMD was measured at the lumbar spine and proximal femur using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry.
Results
Patients' age range from 22 to 83. Mean age, height (cm), weight (kg), body mass index (BMI) (kg/m2), waist circumference (cm) and calorie intake of patients are 54.8 ± 10.8, 167.6 ± 5.7, 68.7 ± 10.1, 24.4 ± 3.0, 85.9 ± 7.5, 2351.1 ± 300. Weight and calorie intake were correlated with BMD. Smoking, alcohol and exercise were not correlated BMD.
Conclusion
Although alcohol, smoking, low BMI, immobility, poor nutrition are known to be correlate with BMD, this study showed no relationship between them. It is not statistically significant but smoking and lumbar 1, 3 and 4 as well as the femur show negative correlation considering alcohols all parts of lumbar spine, they show negative correlations while exercise and all parts of the lumbar and femur show positive correlation. Thus to prevent male osteoporosis subjects should quit smoking and exercise adequately. [Korean Journal of Bone Metabolism, 17(2): 95-101, 2010]
