Background: Calcium and phosphate are two minerals that are important for bone formation. Osteoblasts indirectly regulate osteoclast resorption activity under the influence of estrogen. Estrogen itself produces growth factors and contributes to bone formation so that bone mineral density decreases with an increase in menopause. Objective: This study aimed to know correlation between mineral levels and bone loss risk in postmenopausal women. Methods: This research was a case control study. Samples size were 34 postmenopausal women. Data was analyzed by chi-square to see the correlation mineral levels to bone loss and the strength of the association between factor and outcome was determined as an odds ratio (OR). Results: There is correlation between mineral levels with Bone Loss in postmenopouse woman with p value 0.018 and have possibility (OR=12.000; CI 95%= 1.623 – 88.702). The odds ratio show that the risk to bone loss in low mineral subjects was 12 times compared with normal mineral subjects. Conclusion: Need to provide additional calcium for postmenopausal women to increase mineral levels so that they avoid bone loss.
