Abstract


Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the vitamin D perception level in the treatment of osteoporosis of Korean postmenopausal women.

Methods: This study investigates the perception levels of 400 postmenopausal women aged 50 and over, vitamin D supplement administration, knowledge of vitamin D nutrition, consulting and information of vitamin D and the effect of media exposure during osteoporosis management. A descriptive survey design and a convenience sample of 400 female postmenopausal patients were used. Data were collected with a questionnaire and analysed.

Results: Sixty-two% of the patients took supplementary drugs in addition to prescribed main anti-osteoporotic medications. As supplementary drugs, most of them took calcium (57%) and this was twice the number of people taking vitamin D. For those who failed to take the recommended vitamin D or calcium regularly, seventy-eight% of them did not understand that it is important to take regularly. And this survey showed that people do not have enough knowledge on vitamin D compared to calcium. Patients thought that vitamin D is the third most important factor, next to calcium and exercise, for managing healthy and strong bones. Findings indicated that the women displayed a low level of perception and interests in vitamin D and the importance of vitamin D in the management of osteoporosis was assessed at lower than the truth.

Conclusion: These findings suggested that the rates of vitamin D administration of Korean postmenopausal women in the management of osteoporosis is a low level because of a low level of perception of the importance of vitamin D. Therefore the education and the informations about vitamin D are contributable to the treatment of osteoporosis.
