Vitamin D in fracture prevention and muscle function and fall prevention


Bischoff Ferrari, H A (2009). Vitamin D in fracture prevention and muscle function and fall prevention. Clinical Reviews in Bone and Mineral Metabolism, 7(1):107-112.

Abstract

This chapter reviews the potential of vitamin D for the prevention of falls and fractures. Evidence from randomized-controlled trials will be reviewed for both endpoints, as well as epidemiologic data that links higher 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) status to better bone and muscle health. The chapter addresses the evidence of fracture and fall prevention by dose of vitamin D, by type of dwelling and treatment duration. All data considered, this chapter summarizes the compelling dual benefit of vitamin D on fracture reduction by its bone and muscle target, a concept that is reviewed at the onset of the chapter.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
