Fractures are disruptive. Fractures hurt. Fractures keep you from doing what you want to do.
Fractures are pricey in not
only in terms of money but also time and suffering. How can osteoporotic fractures
be prevented? Calcium and vitamin D supplementation for those with osteoporosis. Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center treats many Fort Wayne
osteoporotic patients and endorses preventive measures like
nutritional taking supplements to preempt
osteoporotic fractures and keep our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients
strong and in good shape.
SUPPLEMENTATION SAVES SUFFERING AND MONEY FOR FRACTURES
Your Fort Wayne chiropractor realizes that supplementing with calcium and vitamin D feeds the bones and helps them be strong. This feeding and
strengthening preferably should start in the teen
years, but supplementing at any age is of value. A recent
study of osteoporosis patients in the European Union and the United States shares
a some amazing facts:
(A) greater than 500,000 fractures a year in the European
Union and 300,000 in the US could be avoided
if every adult with osteoporosis in the EU and US used
calcium and vitamin D and
(B) lots of money could be saved: €5.7 billion in the EU and $3.3 billion in
the US. (1)
Those are some huge figures!
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center surely urges backing this effort to save money and, more importantly,
suffering by supplementing with calcium and vitamin D3.
THE PROPER TYPE OF SUPPLEMENT IS KEY
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center is very confident
that if you are making the effort to take calcium and vitamin D, you want it to be effective. You
want them to be absorbed as much as possible. That is
where the type of vitamin D you choose is important. Achieving
and keeping adequate levels of vitamin D is also
important for bone and general health. This is a problem
for people around the world. Why? Absorption. Absorption may
be slowed in conditions like obesity in which nutrients
get trapped in the adipose tissue, in diseases that are known
for reduced intestinal absorption, and with some neurological
diseases that require special drugs that predispose the
person’s system to not synthesize the calcifediol successfully.
The recommendation in this recent research paper is to use
oral calcifediol (vitamin D3) as it is three to five times more powerful and
has a greater rate of intestinal absorption. (2) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center recognizes the importance of good
