Fernandina Beach Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues around the world. Fernandina Beach hip fracture risk is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic constantly keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with osteoporosis and carefully monitors our Fernandina Beach osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Fernandina Beach OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE

As easy as it seems, just figuring out who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to prevent a hip fracture is sometimes difficult! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research data about the effectiveness of screening the general population reported that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is watchful of at-risk Fernandina Beach osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Fernandina Beach OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated matters like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain pharmaceutical products are described as changing bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures. These drugs were significantly associated with these fractures in this review of 38 studies on the subject: antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs, H2 antagonists, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, and thyroid hormone.  One drug intervention was linked to a reduced risk of hip fracture: hormone replacement therapy with estrogen. The advice researchers proposed to give patients at risk of fragility hip fractures due to medications: information about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is all about sharing information and would add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.

Fernandina Beach CHIROPRACTIC SUGGESTED NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS AND HIP FRACTURE REDUCTION

As hip fracture is a serious complication of osteoporosis, a non-drug approach like multivitamin use and its effect on hip fracture risk is most interesting.  A meta-analysis found 8 studies on hip fracture risk and multivitamin use. 80,148 subjects – 4237 of them had a fragility hip fracture – were included. The average age was 69 years. 21% were male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already quite popular and widely used. Their use was found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic hates to think any of our osteoporotic patients would deal with a hip fracture!
