Hip fractures. These are significant health issues globally. The risk of West Des Moines hip fracture is impacted negatively by drugs taken for all types of issues and positively by nutritional supplements.

A new, simple way to address hip fracture risk seems to be daily multivitamin supplementation. Easy!

West Des Moines 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 sometimes difficult! A meta-analysis (a top-level review) of published research data about the effectiveness of screening the general population reported that such screening decreased osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures.  (1) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is watchful of at-risk West Des Moines osteoporotic and hip fracture patients.

DRUGS AND West Des Moines OSTEOPOROTIC HIP FRACTURE

Fragility hip fractures and related issues including mortality are issues for healthcare providers. Certain pharmaceutical products are described as changing bone structure and influence the risk of fragility hip fractures. These drugs were significantly linked to these fractures in a 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 linked to 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: info about osteoporosis and fracture prevention. (2) That’s good advice. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is all about giving out information and would add that new research points to supplementation as a help.

West Des Moines 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 widely used. Their use was observed to be significantly protective against osteoporosis-related hip fracture.
