Groton Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues globally. Groton hip fracture risk is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office constantly considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully observes our Groton osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk appears to be daily multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Groton OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE

As easy as it seems, just figuring out who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to avoid a hip fracture is sometimes difficult! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research findings regarding the effectiveness of screening the general population reported that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is watchful of at-risk Groton osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Groton OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and related issues 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 this review of 38 studies on the topic: antiparkinsonian drugs, antidepressants, anxiolytic drugs, antipsychotic drugs, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, H2 antagonists, and thyroid hormone.  One drug intervention was linked to a reduced 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: information about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good advice. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is all about giving out information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

Groton 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 found 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 widely used. Their use was found to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture.
