Osteoporosis is most common age related, multifactorial disease. The aim of the researchers were to discover the association between serum homocysteine, vitamin D, vitamin Band bone mineral density in postmenopausal non-osteoporotic and osteoporotic females. In this cross- sectional study, 156 postmenopausal females between 50-70 years of age were recruited and divided into two groups, non-osteoporotic (n = 52) and osteoporotic (n = 104). There was significant negative correlation of homocysteine with vitamin D and Bin postmenopausal non-osteoporotic and homocysteine with vitamin Bin postmenopausal osteoporotic females. Serum homocysteine levels were predicted by vitamin D in postmenopausal non-osteoporotic and vitamin Bin postmenopausal osteoporotic females.
