Hip fractures. These are significant health
issues around the world. Auburn hip fracture risk is impacted adversely
by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. constantly keeps in
mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully monitors
our Auburn osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be daily
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Auburn OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE
As easy as it seems, just finding the people
who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to prevent
a hip fracture is occasionally a trick! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research data regarding
the efficacy of screening the general population reported
that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is watchful of at-risk
Auburn osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Auburn OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related matters
like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some
pharmaceutical products are described as changing
bone structure and impact the risk of fragility hip fractures.
These drugs were highly linked to
these fractures in this review of 38 studies on the topic:
antiparkinsonian drugs, antidepressants, anxiolytic
drugs, antipsychotic drugs, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, H2
antagonists, and thyroid hormone.
One drug intervention was linked to a decreased risk of hip fracture: hormone replacement therapy with estrogen. The advice
researchers suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip
fractures due to medications: info
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good
advice. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is all about sharing information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
