Resumo: Osteoporosis is a skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass. It is considered a worldwide public health problem that affects a large number of people, in particularly for women with more than 50 years old. The occurrence pattern of osteoporosis in a population may be related to several factors, including socio-economic factors such as income, educational attainment, and factors related to lifestyle such as diet and physical activity. These and other aspects have increasingly been identified as determining the occurrence of various diseases, including osteoporosis. This work proposes a mathematical model that provides the level of osteoporosis in the patient. Preliminary numerical results are presented.
