Tonawanda Vitamin Deficiencies in Women Related to Fracture Risk

Fractures are enemies of Tonawanda women and men. They give rise to pain and long recoveries. Tonawanda postmenopausal women have a tendency to be at higher risk of fractures, particularly those who have vitamin deficiencies. Tonawanda vitamin deficiencies are pretty [simple|easy]6] to test for and addressed with Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation's help should testing divulge such deficiencies. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation guides Tonawanda chiropractic patients who are ready to have their vitamin status evaluated and help them any deficiencies so as to reduce fracture risk.


The more the better? Not necessarily when it comes to several vitamin deficiencies! A recent study described 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 taken in women over 50 years of age and followed for 6.3 years (plus or minus 5.1 years). 29.7% of these women experienced fractures during that time period. The total of deficiencies (0/no deficiencies to 3/deficient in D, K and B) was significantly related to fracture risk. (1) Regarding this report, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation notes that it’s important to check for vitamin deficiencies and address them.


Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation notes that the risk of fragility fractures is higher than the risk of breast cancer for postmenopausal women. 33% are at risk. Luckily, Tonawanda fracture risk may well be controlled by healthy lifestyle changes like vitamin supplementation, weight-bearing exercise, limited alcohol intake and no smoking. Vitamin supplementation incorporating 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 reduces 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 showed the strongest impact on vertebral fracture reduction. (4) And while supplementing with vitamin B alone did not show a significant impact on osteoporotic fracture occurrence in patients with cerebrovascular disease, it did show a modest impact. (5) Patients with very high plasma homocysteine levels and vascular disease appeared to benefit more from vitamin B supplementation (folate, B6, and B12) to prevent osteoporotic fractures. Vitamin B effectively changes HCy levels thought to have a role in osteoporotic fracture and bone turnover. (6) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation examines all kinds of factors when directing patients in nutritional supplementation.
