Hip fractures. These are major health
issues around the world. 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 reported to change
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:
antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs,
H2 antagonists, benzodiazepines, proton
pump inhibitors, 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
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. (3)
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients experience
a hip fracture!
