Hip Fractures and Mortality

Breaking a hip in old age can obviously be traumatic but a recent study has determined that it can increase the incidence of death within the following 5 years by 25%. Hip fractures are much more common in those patients with thinner bone caused by osteoporosis. For this reason, it is very important that patients have their bone density tested regularly.

Those at risk for osteoporosis should take a comprehensive bone support formula. IPM’s Osteo Complex provides all the bone supportive nutrients needed to restore healthy bones, and delivers these vitamins and minerals in their most absorbable forms.
