Abstract

Background: Osteoporosis in the elderly has dangerous complications, the most important of which are bone fractures and reduced quality of life in the elderly. The present study was aimed at estimating the prevalence of osteoporosis in Iranian elderly using systematic review and meta-analysis. Methods: This search was conducted using authentic Persian and English keywords in national and international databases including Scientific Information Database, Magiran, IranDoc, PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane, Embase, and Web of Sciencewith no time limit until 20.06.2020. Heterogeneity of studies was assessed using I 2 index. Data were analyzed using STATA Ver. 15 software. Results: In 30 studies with a sample size of 13,347 people, the prevalence of osteoporosis and low bone density in people over 60 years in Iran were 34 (95 CI: 27, 42) and 47 (95 CI: 41, 53), respectively. We also found that 34 of women and 41 of men over the age of 60 suffer from osteoporosis. Prevalence of osteoporosis was in lumbar bone 23 (95 CI: 20, 26), spine 25 (95 CI: 19, 31), hip 35 (95 CI: 7, 62), and femur 23 (95 CI: 15, 31). Prevalence of low bone density was in lumbar bone 41 (95 CI: 19, 63), spine 30 (95 CI: 15, 46), and femur 35 (95 CI: 21, 48). Conclusion: The prevalence of low bone density in people over 60 years is higher than the prevalence of osteoporosis in them. About one-third of Iranian elderly people suffer from osteoporosis, but about half of them have low bone density.
