Methods: Descriptive study of 299 people aged 40-90 years was studied in Bangsitong subdistrict, Nonthaburi. Data was obtained using FRAX® to predict 10-year probability of fracture and calculate prevalence of people with high risk of fracture. Related factors associated people with high risk of fracture was obtained using general information questionnaire and were assessed by Binary logistic regression with Forward stepwise.

Results : The prevalence of people with high risk of fracture in the next 10-year was 19.7 percent. The related factors that have statistically significant were female sex (adj.Odds ratio 3.41, 95%CI 1.43-8.13), the population aged 80 and over (adj.OR 20.69, 95%CI 7.31-58.56), high BMI (adj.OR 0.44, 95%CI 0.21-0.91) and unemployed or retired person (adj.OR 3.09, 95%CI 1.47-6.51).
