Swedish researchers show impact of long-term vitamin D insufficiency on fracture risk
Date:4/4/2014

ent.

Professor Kristina Akesson, Clinical and Molecular Osteoporosis Research Unit at Lund University, Chair of the IOF Capture the Fracture Campaign, stated, "This study concludes that in the population sample of elderly women, vitamin D insufficiency sustained over 5-years was associated with increased 10-year risk of osteoporotic fracture."

She added, "This is part of a body of research which increasingly suggests that falls and fracture risk in the elderly could be lower by having higher vitamin D levels. The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) global recommendations for vitamin D advise daily intakes of 800 to 1000 IU/day in seniors for fracture and falls prevention, and if the on-going research shows that vitamin D levels are increased it may be a relatively simple and low-cost public health measure that could have significant positive effects on the incidence of osteoporotic fractures with aging."

Fracture prevention is a key focus of IOF's global campaign 'Capture the Fracture'. The campaign specifically targets secondary fracture prevention by promoting the implementation of coordinator-based fracture liaison services in hospitals and clinics worldwide.
