It has been detected that in Croatia 400 000 women have osteopenia and 200 000 osteoporosis. Because epidemiological and clinical evidence indicate that milk and dairy products are the main natural source of dietary calcium, increasing intakes of milk and dairy products decreases the risk and progress of metabolic bone diseases such as osteoporosis and osteopenia. The aim of this study was to determine the consumption frequency of milk and dairy products in women with osteoporosis or osteopenia disease. The examinees were one hundred and two women from Croatia, ranging in age from 45 to 81, with osteoporosis (87.3 %) or osteopenia (12.7 %). Subjects were recruited from two hospitals in Zagreb (the capital). The monitoring of consumed food was performed using Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ), 24-hours-recall, and through 84 questions relevant to patient illness. The results indicated that 67.0 % of subjects do not consume milk, 26.5 % do not consume yoghurt, 68.3 % do not consume fresh soft cheeses, and 78.4 % do not consume cheeses at all. The mean foodstuff calcium consumption was 650 mg/day, with significantly higher intake noted in women who snacked daily, did not skip meals, drink one or more servings of milk daily, and ate yoghurt daily. Dietary calcium intake was also dependent on socioeconomic status and personal attitudes toward milk. According to DRI 94.1 % had insufficient intake of daily calcium and did not change their nutritional habits to improve their calcium intake by food rich on calcium. Because of that calcium as supplement and food fortified with calcium would be good recommendation as well as better nutritional education for persons with osteoporosis and osteopenia.
