Auburn Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

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.

Auburn 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 reviewed. The average age was 69 years. 21% were male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already quite popular and commonly used. Their use was found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture.
