Abstract: Bone mineral density (BMD) is the amount of bone mineral in bone tissue and its measurement is used in clinical medicine as an indirect indicator of osteoporosis and fracture risk. Anemia is a commonly encountered clinical condition with iron deficiency anemia being more common in females especially pregnant. This study aims to predict the hypothesis that their exists a directly proportional relation between haemoglobin level and bone mineral density. This study was conducted as an interdepartmental exercise done by Department of Orthopaedics and Physiology of SRG Hospital and Jhalawar Medical College, Jhalawar (Raj.). Total of 100 patients were included in the study 50 acting as control (hb levels above 9gm %) and rest as test (hb levels between 9-7gm%). Decreased bone mineral density and its association with haemoglobin levels is proven in various studies, our study though have a small sample size but it predicts a directly proportional relation between haemoglobin levels and T-Score.
