Hip fractures. These are significant health
issues around the globe. Minster hip fracture risk 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 patients with
osteoporosis 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 issues
like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some
pharmaceutical products are reported to alter
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 commonly 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!
