Plainville Vitamin Deficiencies in Women Related to Fracture Risk

Fractures are enemies of Plainville women and men. They bring about pain and long recoveries. Plainville postmenopausal women have a tendency to be at higher risk of fractures, particularly those who experience vitamin deficiencies. Plainville vitamin deficiencies are pretty [simple|easy]6] to test for and tackled with Layden Chiropractic's help should testing divulge such deficiencies. Layden Chiropractic directs Plainville chiropractic patients who are ready to have their vitamin status evaluated and help them any deficiencies so as to lower fracture risk.


The more the merrier? Not necessarily when it comes to multiple vitamin deficiencies! A recent study described that the cumulative effect of vitamin deficiencies intensified the risk of incident fractures in postmenopausal women. Vitamin D, vitamin K and vitamin B levels were recorded in women over 50 years of age and tracked 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 associated with fracture risk. (1) Regarding this report, Layden Chiropractic notes that it’s important to check for vitamin deficiencies and tackle them.


Layden Chiropractic notes that the risk of fragility fractures is higher than the risk of breast cancer for postmenopausal women. One in 3 are at risk. Fortunately, Plainville fracture risk can be limited by healthy lifestyle modifications like vitamin supplementation, weight-bearing exercise, limited alcohol consumption 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 plus 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 demonstrated the strongest effect on vertebral fracture reduction. (4) And while supplementing with vitamin B alone didn’t show a significant impact on osteoporotic fracture occurrence 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) Layden Chiropractic examines all types of factors when guiding patients in nutritional supplementation.
