Pflugerville Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues globally. The risk of Pflugerville hip fracture is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Pflugerville Wellness Center constantly keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with osteoporosis and carefully monitors our Pflugerville osteoporotic patients. A new, simple way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Pflugerville OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE

As easy as it seems, just figuring out who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to avoid 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 decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center is watchful of at-risk Pflugerville osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Pflugerville OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and related matters including 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 highly associated with these fractures in a review of 38 studies on the topic: antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs, benzodiazepines, H2 antagonists, proton pump inhibitors, and thyroid hormone.  One drug intervention was linked to a decreased risk of hip fracture: hormone replacement therapy with estrogen. The advice researchers proposed to give patients at risk of fragility hip fractures caused by medications: details about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Pflugerville Wellness Center is all about sharing information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

Pflugerville 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 reported on 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 widely used. Their use was found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Pflugerville Wellness Center hates to think any of our osteoporotic patients would suffer a hip fracture!
