Description

This study is to examine the association between osteoporosis and demographic and behavioral factors in women of age 50 and older who had undergone hysterectomies prior to reaching natural menopause. The 2009-2010 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) was analyzed using multiple logistic regressions analysis. Osteoporosis was inversely associated with demographic and behavioral factors. Non-Hispanic Whites of the age of 36-45 at the time of the hysterectomies were significantly associated with osteoporosis. This study may drive positive social change by facilitating public health to promote and implement effective behavioral interventions in women.
