Description
The aim of this study was to clarify the actual conditions of daily activities and meals in female patients with femoral fracture and compare them with women in the same age group. Subjects were 50 female patients with femoral fracture (a femoral fracture group) and 50 women in the same age group (control group) whose consent had been obtained, and we investigated their daily activities and ingestion of calcium-rich foods for bone metabolism. The investigation duration was October 2005 to March 2007. For statistical processing, chi-square test was performed with SPSS. The study was approved by each participating institutional ethics review board. The average age of the femoral fracture group was 80.4 years (SD : 8.9years), and that of the control group was 79.0 years(SD : 5.2 years), showing no significant difference. The numbers of patients with a history of fracture were25 (50%)in the femoral fracture group and 0(0%) in the control group, with the fracture group, being significantly large in the number. For daily activities, the numbers of patients answering that they had exposure to sunshine once daily were 40 (80%) in the fracture group and 47 (94%) in the control group, with the fracture group, being significantly small in the number. Other daily activities, unbalanced diets, dietary restriction or water ingestion showed no significant difference between the groups. For foods, only yogurt intake showed a significant difference between the groups, with the intake being larger in the femoral fracture group. The intake of milk, small fishes, etc. showed no significant difference between the groups. Women with a history of fracture have higher risk to have femoral fracture. A significant difference in amount of sun exposure was confirmed between the control and inpatient groups regarding.
