ABSTRACT

Geriatric patients with in the age group 61-70 were more affected with lifestyle disease and females are more prone to lifestyle disease than males. Osteoporosis was the most prevalent lifestyle disease in geriatrics followed by diabetes mellitus, dyslipidaemia and hypertension. A Prospective cross sectional study was carried out in Eraviperoor Grama Panchayath of Pathanamthitta district in Kerala on the topic prevalence of lifestyle diseases and drug utilization evaluation in geriatrics. The correlation of social history with the lifestyle disease shows that alcohol and smoking were the most prominent risk factors associated with hypertension and tobacco use was associated with the progression of dyslipidaemia. Adherence to drug therapy was measured with the help of a score sheet of fourteen questionnaires, highlighted that majority of the population adhered to their drug therapy and only very few were poorly adherent to drug therapy and the main reason for non-adherence was found to be the lack of knowledge about their medications. The pattern of prescribing medications of osteoporosis according to the standard guideline were monitored and deviation was observed in our study.

Keywords: Food habits are also an important risk factor for osteoporosis but we were not able to monitor it.
