Plymouth Vitamin Deficiencies in Women Related to Fracture Risk

Fractures are enemies of Plymouth women and men. They result in pain and long recoveries. Plymouth postmenopausal women tend to be at greater risk of fractures, especially those who have vitamin deficiencies. Plymouth vitamin deficiencies are pretty [simple|easy]6] to test for and fixed with Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology's help should testing divulge such deficiencies. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology directs Plymouth chiropractic patients who are ready to have their vitamin status checked and help them any deficiencies in order to lower 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 measured in women over 50 years old 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, Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology notes the importance of checking for vitamin deficiencies and tackle them.


Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology notes that the risk of fragility fractures is more than the risk of breast cancer for postmenopausal women. One in 3 are at risk. Fortunately, Plymouth fracture risk may well be curbed by healthy lifestyle changes 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 recommended. (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 had the strongest effect on vertebral fracture reduction. (4) And while supplementing with vitamin B alone did not demonstrate a significant effect 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 modifies HCy levels thought to have a role in osteoporotic fracture and bone turnover. (6) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology considers all sorts of factors when guiding patients in nutritional supplementation.
