Fractures are disruptive. Fractures are painful. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do. Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. treats many Auburn osteoporotic patients and recommends preventive measures like nutritional taking supplements to preempt osteoporotic fractures and keep our Auburn chiropractic patients strong and in good shape.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Auburn chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening preferably should start in the teen years, but supplementing at any age is beneficial. A new study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares a some startling facts:

(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the EU and 300,000 in the United States could be prevented if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US took calcium and vitamin D and

(B) lots of money could be saved: €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in the US. (1)

Those are some big figures! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. surely urges support of this effort to save money and, more importantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is quite confident that if you are making the effort to supplement with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the type of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving and keeping proper levels of vitamin D is also key for bone and general health. This is a problem for people around the world. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be hindered in conditions like obesity in which nutrients get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that need special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully. The recommendation in this recent research paper is to take oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a greater rate of intestinal absorption.
