Hip fractures. These are significant health
issues globally. Sitka hip fracture risk is impacted negatively
by drugs taken for all types of issues and helpfully
by nutritional supplements. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka always keeps in
mind the risk of fragility hip fracture in our osteoporotic patients and carefully monitors
our Sitka osteoporotic patients. A new, simple
way to address hip fracture risk appears to be once-a-day
multivitamin supplementation. Easy!
Sitka 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 prevent
a hip fracture is occasionally a trick! A meta-analysis
(a top-level review) of published research findings regarding
the effectiveness of screening the general population reported
that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip
fractures. (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is watchful of at-risk
Sitka osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.
DRUGS AND Sitka OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE
Fragility hip fractures and related matters
including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Some
pharmaceutical products are reported to change
bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures.
These drugs were significantly linked to
these fractures in this review of 38 studies on the topic:
antidepressants, antiparkinsonian drugs, antipsychotic drugs, anxiolytic drugs,
H2 antagonists, benzodiazepines, 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 suggested to give patients at risk of fragility hip
fractures due to medications: info
about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good
advice. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is all about sharing information and would
add that new research points to
supplementation as a help.
Sitka 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 found 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 very popular
and commonly used. Their use was observed to be
significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture. (3)
