Hip fractures. These are major health
issues around the globe. The risk of Vancouver
hip fracture is impacted adversely
by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and helpfully
by nutritional supplements. Vancouver Disc Centers always considers the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully monitors
our Vancouver osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated
way to address hip fracture risk seems to be daily
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Vancouver OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE
As easy as it seems, just figuring out
who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to avoid
a hip fracture is sometimes a trick! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research findings about
the effectiveness of screening the general population reported
that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers is vigilant about looking for at-risk
Vancouver osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Vancouver OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related matters
including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain
pharmaceutical products are reported to alter
bone structure and impact the risk of fragility hip fractures.
These drugs were highly associated with
these fractures in a 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 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 due to medications: information
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That is good
advice. Vancouver Disc Centers is all about sharing information and would
add that new research indicates that supplementation helps.
Vancouver 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 most
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 very popular
and widely used. Their use was observed to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
Vancouver Disc Centers hates to
think any of our osteoporotic patients would suffer
a hip fracture!
