Fernandina Beach Vitamin Deficiencies in Women Related to Fracture Risk

Fractures are enemies of Fernandina Beach women and men. They lead to pain and long recoveries. Fernandina Beach postmenopausal women tend to be at higher risk of fractures, particularly those who have vitamin deficiencies. Fernandina Beach vitamin deficiencies are relatively [simple|easy]6] to test for and addressed with Amelia Chiropractic Clinic's help should testing divulge such deficiencies. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic directs Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients who want to check their vitamin status with nutrition and address any deficiencies so as to lower fracture risk.

VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES AND FRACTURE RISK

The more the merrier? Not necessarily when it comes to several vitamin deficiencies! A new study told that the cumulative effect of vitamin deficiencies intensified the risk of incident fractures in postmenopausal women. Vitamin D, vitamin K and vitamin B levels were measured in women over 50 years of age and followed for 6.3 years (plus or minus 5.1 years). 29.7% of these women had fractures during this time. The total of deficiencies (0/no deficiencies to 3/deficient in D, K and B) was significantly associated with fracture risk. (1) With respect to this report, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic notices that it’s important to check for vitamin deficiencies and deal with them.

WHAT TO DO TO FIX VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES AND AVOID Fernandina Beach FRACTURES

Amelia Chiropractic Clinic notes that the risk of fragility fractures is more than the risk of breast cancer for postmenopausal women. 33% are at risk. Fortunately, Fernandina Beach fracture risk may well be limited by healthy lifestyle modifications like vitamin supplementation, weight-bearing exercise, limited alcohol intake and not smoking. Vitamin supplementation including at least 1000 mg/day of calcium, 800 IU/day of vitamin D, and 1 gram/kilogram of body weight of protein in women over 50 is recommended. (2) Vitamin D plus calcium supplementation reduces the risk of total fractures by 15% and hip fractures by 30%, specifically. (3) Oral vitamin K supplementation (phytonadione and menaquinone-4) reduced bone loss. Menaquinone-4 demonstrated the strongest impact on vertebral fracture reduction. (4) And while vitamin B supplementation alone didn’t show a significant effect on osteoporotic fracture incidence in patients with cerebrovascular disease, it did show a modest impact. (5) Patients with very high plasma homocysteine levels and vascular disease appeared to benefit more from vitamin B supplementation (folate, B6, and B12) to prevent osteoporotic fractures. Vitamin B appropriately modifies HCy levels considered to have a role in osteoporotic fracture and bone turnover. (6) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic examines all kinds of factors when guiding patients in nutritional supplementation.
