The main point of this study was an assessment of quantity and frequency of intake of this products in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis. Objective. The aim of this study was an assessment of quantity and frequency of intake of the most important food affecting calcium metabolism in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis and first of all to give an answer to following research questions: 1. How is molding the level of intake of high-calcium products with reference to recommended norms in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis? 2. How was molded the intake of high-calcium products between 11 and 18 years of live? 3. How is molding the intake of products having essential influence on bone mass loss in analyzed groups? Material. The research was carried out from October 2006 to March 2007. All the patients were qualified to the research group on the basis of densitometry examination of the spine. All patients are currently treated in osteoporosis clinics in Krakow. The subjects were group of 60 women, aged 49 to 91 (average age 69 years). Most of the patients (54 people) live in Krakow, the rest of the research group (6 persons) live in Myoelenice and Wieliczka. Method.
