Baton Rouge Osteoporosis & Fracture Prevention with Calcium and Vitamin D

Fractures are no fun. Fractures hurt. Fractures slow you down. Fractures are pricey in terms of time, money and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those who have osteoporosis. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees many Baton Rouge osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like nutritional supplementation to deter osteoporotic fractures and keep our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients strong and fit.

SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES

Your Baton Rouge chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and strengthening preferably should start in the teen years, but supplementing at any age is beneficial. A recent study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States lists a couple startling statistics:

(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European Union and 300,000 in the US could be prevented if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US used calcium and vitamin D and

(B) lots of money could be saved: €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in the US. (1)

Those are some enormous numbers! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation certainly encourages support of this effort to save money and, more importantly, suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.

THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is very confident that if you are making the effort to supplement with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You want the nutrients to be absorbed as much as possible. That is where the type of vitamin D you choose is important. Attaining and maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D is also important for bone and general health. This is an issue for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may be delayed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are recognized for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological diseases that need special drugs that predispose the person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully. The recommendation in this new research paper is to use oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and has a higher rate of intestinal absorption.
