Supervised High-Intensity Resistance and Impact Training (HiRIT) Is Safe, Effective for Older Women at Risk for Fracture
Proton-pump inhibitor use has been linked to Osteoporosis, but a causal relationship has not been proven. Based on such and other potential side-effects concerns, the current conventional wisdom advises PPI usage to be limited to the shortest duration necessary.
This study suggesting a post-hip fracture mortality rate reduction with PPI use certainly flies in the face of conventional wisdom. Perhaps appropriate PPI use post-fracture reduces stress ulceration and related complications. Judicious use is therefore recommended.
