Rising awareness of employees regarding osteoporosis and its determinants was also carried out in a trial to prevent, postpone or retard the progress of the disease.
High smoking index, sedentary lifestyle as well as faulty dietary habits and family history greatly impacted and predisposed to the occurrence of osteoporosis and osteopenia among them.
Nearly a quarter of study participants were found to have osteoporosis using "quantitative computed tomography" on 1-4 lumber vertebrae in the CT unit.
