A new study clearly associates vitamin D deficiency1 with an increased risk of hip fracture, dispelling any uncertainty about this link. This finding was established by following a group of women age 50-79 over a seven year period. The researchers found that the lower the vitamin D level in the blood, the more likely a woman was to have a first hip fracture (during the following seven years). This data clearly established the need for vitamin D adequacy in the prevention of age-associated fractures – a public health finding of the utmost importance.
