Hip fractures. These are significant health
issues around the world. The risk of Baton Rouge
hip fracture is impacted adversely
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and helpfully
by nutritional supplements. Spine & Sports Rehab Center always considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully monitors
our Baton Rouge osteoporotic patients. A new, simple
way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Baton Rouge 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 sometimes difficult! 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center is vigilant about looking for at-risk
Baton Rouge osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Baton Rouge OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and associated issues
including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain
pharmaceutical products are described as changing
bone structure and impact the risk of fragility hip fractures.
These drugs were highly associated with
these fractures in this review of 38 studies on the subject:
antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs,
benzodiazepines, H2 antagonists, 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 suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip
fractures caused by medications: info
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good
advice. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is all about sharing information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
Baton Rouge 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 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)
Spine & Sports Rehab Center would hate to see any of our osteoporotic patients suffer
a hip fracture!
