Baton Rouge Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues around the globe. The risk of Baton Rouge hip fracture is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation constantly keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with osteoporosis and carefully observes our Baton Rouge osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Baton Rouge OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE

As easy as it seems, just figuring out 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 data about the effectiveness of screening the general population reported that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is watchful of at-risk Baton Rouge osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Baton Rouge OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated matters like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some pharmaceutical products are reported to change bone structure and impact the risk of fragility hip fractures. These drugs were significantly linked to 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 suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip fractures caused by medications: information about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is all about giving out information and would add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.

Baton Rouge 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 examined. 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. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation hates to think any of our osteoporotic patients would experience a hip fracture!
