Montreal Vitamin Deficiencies in Women Related to Fracture Risk

Fractures are enemies of Montreal women and men. They lead to pain and long recoveries. Montreal postmenopausal women have a tendency to be at higher risk of fractures, particularly those who have vitamin deficiencies. Montreal vitamin deficiencies are relatively [simple|easy]6] to test for and fixed with Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic's help should testing divulge such deficiencies. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic directs Montreal chiropractic patients who are ready to have their vitamin status checked and help them any deficiencies so as to reduce fracture risk.

VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES AND FRACTURE RISK

The more the merrier? Not necessarily when it comes to multiple vitamin deficiencies! A new study told that the cumulative effect of vitamin deficiencies increased the risk of incident fractures in postmenopausal women. Vitamin D, vitamin K and vitamin B levels were measured in women over 50 years of age and tracked for 6.3 years (plus or minus 5.1 years). 29.7% of these women had fractures during this time. The number of deficiencies (0/no deficiencies to 3/deficient in D, K and B) was significantly related to fracture risk. (1) In light of this report, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic notes the importance of checking for vitamin deficiencies and deal with them.

WHAT TO DO TO FIX VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES AND AVOID Montreal FRACTURES

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic points out that the risk of fragility fractures is higher than the risk of breast cancer for postmenopausal women. One in 3 are at risk. Fortunately, Montreal fracture risk may well be controlled by healthy lifestyle modifications like vitamin supplementation, weight-bearing exercise, limited alcohol intake and no smoking. Vitamin supplementation including at least 1000 mg/day of calcium, 800 IU/day of vitamin D, and 1 gram/kilogram of body weight of protein in women over 50 is suggested. (2) Vitamin D with calcium supplementation lessens the risk of total fractures by 15% and hip fractures by 30%, specifically. (3) Oral vitamin K supplementation (phytonadione and menaquinone-4) reduced bone loss. Menaquinone-4 had the strongest effect on vertebral fracture reduction. (4) And while vitamin B supplementation alone didn’t show a significant effect on osteoporotic fracture incidence in patients with cerebrovascular disease, it did show a modest effect. (5) Patients with very high plasma homocysteine levels and vascular disease seemed to benefit more from vitamin B supplementation (folate, B6, and B12) to prevent osteoporotic fractures. Vitamin B appropriately changes HCy levels considered to have a role in osteoporotic fracture and bone turnover. (6) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic considers all sorts of factors when directing patients in nutritional supplementation.
