Osteoporosis is an increasing important health problem in the world. The diagnosis of osteoporosis is made by determining that the patient has low bone density, usually by a Dual Energy X-ray Absortiometry (DEXA) measurement. In order to reveal the prevalence of osteoporosis in 20-69 years old women in Bushehr port using DEXA measurements in three parts of femoral sites and lumbar (L2-L4) area, 588 females from 13 clusters were randomly selected. The mean of bone mineral densities were 1.005 (0.171) and 0.794 (0.147) gram/cm2 in lumbar and femoral areas, respectively. The bone mineral densities decreased by increasing in age (p<0.001). The prevalence of osteopenia and osteoporosis were 23.9 and 3.2 percent in lumbar area and 16.5 and 1.5 percent in femoral area respectively. The age of menopause and body mass index (BMI) had significant association with osteoporosis and osteopenia. In conclusion, the prevalence of osteopenia and osteoporosis in 20-69 years old women in Bushehr port is lower than the other populations in America, Europe and Tehran.
