Fractures are no fun. Fractures are
painful. Fractures slow you down.
Fractures are pricey in not
only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office sees many Groton
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional supplementation to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Groton chiropractic patients
strong and fit.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Groton chiropractor is
quite aware that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D supports the
health of bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening ideally should begin in the teen
years, but supplementing at any age is of value. A recent
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States reveals
a some startling facts:
(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the US could be prevented
if every osteoporotic adult in the EU and US took
calcium and vitamin D and
(B) €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in the US could be saved. (1)
Those are some big figures!
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office certainly encourages backing this effort to save money and, more importantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is quite confident
that if you are making the effort to supplement
with calcium and vitamin D, you want it to work. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the type of vitamin D you take is important. Achieving
and keeping adequate levels of vitamin D is also
key for bone and general health. This is a problem
for people everywhere. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be hindered in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get stuck in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known
for decreased intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that require special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol effectively.
The recommendation in this recent 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. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows
this is important.
