Minster Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues globally. The risk of Minster hip fracture is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Minster Chiropractic Center constantly considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully monitors our Minster osteoporotic patients. A new, simple way to address hip fracture risk seems to be daily multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Minster 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 sometimes a trick! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research findings about the effectiveness of screening the general population reported that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Minster Chiropractic Center is vigilant about looking for at-risk Minster osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Minster OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated matters like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some 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 subject: 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 proposed to give patients at risk of fragility hip fractures caused by medications: details about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Minster Chiropractic Center is all about sharing information and would add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.

Minster 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 of interest.  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 examined. The average age was 69 years. 21% were male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already very popular and widely used. Their use was observed to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Minster Chiropractic Center would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer a hip fracture!
