Abstract:   (1564 Views)
Background: Menopause is a unique event in women's life it usually occurs naturally, most often after age 50 when woman has not menstruated in 12 consecutive months. This study was planned to assess the relationship between Vitamin D3 level, PAI-1 and HCG in Babylon women at age <50 years as pre-menopausal and> 50 years as post-menopausal.
The sample were selected from a group of pre- and post-menopausal women, 30 and 50 respectively. All the tests were evaluated to measure Vitamin D3 level, PAI-1 and HCG level. The sample was collected between July 2019 and January 2020 at Merjan medical city GIT and Liver
Center, Babylon province, Iraq.

Results: The result of current study revealed that there are significant differences in vitamin D3 level in various age categories within postmenopausal women (p= 0.02) also there is no significant differences in PAI-1 and HCG with in these two groups, p= 0.08 and 0.07, respectively. Also, there is significant negative correlation between vitamin D3 and PAI-1 in postmenopausal women (p. value is 0.01).

Conclusions: Indeed, postmenopausal women regarded as elderly, but they have sufficient vitamin D3 and normal PAI-I levels as markers for normal non fibrosis status.
