Largo Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues globally. Largo hip fracture risk is impacted adversely by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and helpfully by nutritional supplements. Hollstrom & Associates Inc constantly keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with osteoporosis and carefully monitors our Largo osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk seems to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Largo 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 occasionally a trick! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research findings about the efficacy of screening the general population reported that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc is vigilant about looking for at-risk Largo osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Largo OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated matters including 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 significantly linked to these fractures in this 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. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is all about giving out information and would add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.

Largo 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 included. The average age was 69 years. 21% were male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already quite popular and widely used. Their use was observed to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer a hip fracture!
