Brooks Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are significant health issues around the world. Brooks hip fracture risk is impacted adversely by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Soft Health and Healing Clinic always keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with osteoporosis and carefully monitors our Brooks osteoporotic patients. A new, simple way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Brooks 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 occasionally a trick! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research findings regarding the effectiveness of screening the general population reported that such screening reduced osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic is watchful of at-risk Brooks osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Brooks OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and related issues including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some pharmaceutical products are reported to alter bone structure and impact 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, H2 antagonists, benzodiazepines, 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 suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip fractures caused by medications: information about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good advice. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is all about giving out information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

Brooks 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 commonly used. Their use was observed to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Soft Health and Healing Clinic would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer a hip fracture!
