Manchester Vitamin Deficiencies in Women Related to Fracture Risk

Fractures are enemies of Manchester women and men. They bring about pain and long recoveries. Manchester postmenopausal women have a tendency to be at greater risk of fractures, especially those who have vitamin deficiencies. Manchester vitamin deficiencies are pretty [simple|easy]6] to test for and addressed with Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries's help should testing reveal such deficiencies. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries guides Manchester chiropractic patients who are ready to have their vitamin status checked and help them any deficiencies so as to reduce fracture risk.


The more the better? 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 had fractures during that time period. The number of deficiencies (0/no deficiencies to 3/deficient in D, K and B) was significantly associated with fracture risk. (1) In light of this report, Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries notices the importance of checking for vitamin deficiencies and tackle them.


Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries notes that the risk of fragility fractures is more than the risk of breast cancer for postmenopausal women. 33% are at risk. Luckily, Manchester fracture risk can be curbed by healthy lifestyle modifications like vitamin supplementation, weight-bearing exercise, limited alcohol intake and not 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) decreased bone loss. Menaquinone-4 demonstrated the strongest impact on vertebral fracture reduction. (4) And while vitamin B supplementation alone did not demonstrate a significant effect on osteoporotic fracture occurrence in patients with cerebrovascular disease, it did reveal a modest impact. (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 effectively modifies HCy levels considered to have a role in osteoporotic fracture and bone turnover. (6) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries examines all sorts of factors when directing patients in nutritional supplementation.
