The risk of Baton Rouge hip fracture is impacted adversely by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and helpfully by nutritional supplements.

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!

DRUGS AND Baton Rouge OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and associated issues including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain pharmaceutical products are reported to change 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.

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.
