Montreal Hip Fracture Risk Reduced by Multivitamin Use

Hip fractures. These are major health issues around the world. Montreal hip fracture risk is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all sorts of issues and positively by nutritional supplements. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic always keeps in mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our patients with osteoporosis and carefully observes our Montreal osteoporotic patients. A new, uncomplicated way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

Montreal OSTEOPOROSIS AND HIP FRACTURE

As easy as it seems, just figuring out who are at risk for osteoporotic hip fractures and treating them to prevent a hip fracture is occasionally difficult! 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is vigilant about looking for at-risk Montreal osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND Montreal OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and related matters like 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 highly 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 decreased 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: details about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is all about sharing information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

Montreal 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 interesting.  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 reviewed. The average age was 69 years. 21% were male. Combined multivitamin supplements are already quite popular and commonly used. Their use was observed to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic hates to think any of our osteoporotic patients would deal with a hip fracture!
