ABSTRACT

Osteoporotic patients are highly prone to psychological and emotional issues due to their diminished capability in performing daily tasks and assessing these factors supports physician to pin-point the right characteristics of the patient’s disease. Measuring the quality of life of the patient involves multiple domains, this study involved the physical, mental and pain dynamics. Methods: The study involved 120 female osteoporotic patients who were interviewed with a pre-designed set of QUALEFFO-31 Questionnaire. It consists of 31 questions with 3 main domains like pain, physical and mental function. The scorings were recorded and computed to evaluate the health related quality of life and were accordingly counselled. Results: The study is based on health related quality of life classified into three domains; pain (76%-average), physical (88%-average), mental(68%-best).The risk factor influenced quality of life indicated that the overall worst score(65%) was considerably higher in osteoporotic patients. The patients with poorer educational background and low socio economic status experienced poor quality of life. Conclusion: The quality of life entirely depends on the attitude of the patients towards the disease, medications and found that the quality of life was lower in patients with various risk factors, poor economic background and educational status, as there is no financial support for the treatment, providing counselling to the patients would prove to be beneficial in improving their health related quality of life.
