    Sebbar El-Houcine*, Saalaoui Ennouamane and Choukri Mohammed

    Introduction: Osteoporosis is a major public health problem. Most epidemiological studies show that calcium defi ciency is common in the menopausal women. The aim of our work is to evaluate the calcium intake in the Moroccan menopausal women.

    Methods: The version translated into Arabic dialect Fardellone questionnaire is tested on a sample of 209 menopausal women.

    Results: The mean calcium intake was 4165 mg by week (595 mg/day). The assessment of calcium intake showed a defi ciency, and the average consumption of calcium per day is signifi cantly lower than he recommended daily amount for this population.

    Conclusion: Evaluation of the calcium intake is an essential tool for better management of metabolic bone diseases. The conservation of a food rich in calcium is important at any age; in its absence, a medicinal supplementation in calcium becomes useful.
