Malverne Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues globally. Malverne hip fracture risk is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all types of issues and helpfully by nutritional supplements. Malverne Health & Wellness constantly keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully monitors our Malverne osteoporotic patients. A new, simple way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Malverne 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 prevent a hip fracture is sometimes a trick! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research findings regarding the efficacy of screening the general population reported that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Malverne Health & Wellness is watchful of at-risk Malverne osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Malverne OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and related issues including 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 significantly associated with these fractures in a review of 38 studies on the topic: antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs, benzodiazepines, H2 antagonists, proton pump inhibitors, and thyroid hormone.  One drug intervention was associated with 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: info about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good advice. Malverne Health & Wellness is all about sharing information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

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