Hip fractures. These are major health
issues around the world. Buffalo, NY hip fracture risk is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively
by nutritional supplements. Disc Centers Of America constantly considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully monitors
our Buffalo, NY osteoporotic patients. A new, simple
way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Buffalo, NY OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE
As easy as it seems, just finding the people
who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to avoid
a hip fracture is occasionally a trick! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research data about
the efficacy of screening the general population reported
that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Disc Centers Of America is watchful of at-risk
Buffalo, NY osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Buffalo, NY OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related matters
like mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain
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:
antiparkinsonian drugs, antidepressants, anxiolytic
drugs, antipsychotic drugs, benzodiazepines, proton pump inhibitors, H2
antagonists, and thyroid hormone.
One drug intervention was associated with 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 is good
advice. Disc Centers Of America is all about sharing information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
Buffalo, NY 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 of interest. 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 reviewed. 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)
Disc Centers Of America hates to
think any of our osteoporotic patients would deal with
a hip fracture!
