This study aimed to investigate the relationship between abdominal obesity and osteoporosis in adult men in South Korea using data
from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey of 2009-2010. The study population (n=6,349) was selected
from the 2009-2010 survey. Abdominal obesity in adult men was defined as a waist circumference >90 cm. Osteoporosis was defined
as having a T-score of -2.5 or lower. To investigate the association between abdominal obesity and osteoporosis, multiple logistic
regression analysis was performed. Adult men with abdominal obesity were at a higher risk for non-weight-bearing site osteoporosis
than those in the control group after adjustment (odds ratio (OR): 1.608, 95% confidential interval (95% CI): 1.059-2.441, p=0.0254).
For subjects who were in their twenties or were sixty years or older, abdominal obesity was a risk factor for non-weight-bearing site
osteoporosis (OR: 5.527, 95% CI: 1.269-24.065, p=0.0223 for those in their twenties; OR: 2.189, 95% CI: 1.192-4.020, p=0.0112 for
those sixty years or older). The study findings suggested that abdominal obesity in Korean adult men increases the risk for osteoporosis,
especially in non-weight-bearing sites. Moreover, young men should address potential abdominal obesity due to the emergent agerelated
