Prevention Of Nonvertebral Fractures With Oral Vitamin D And Dose Dependency: A Meta-analysis Of Randomized Controlled Trials
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
The relative risk for bone fractures (nonvertebral) was reduced to a risk ratio of 0.86 (95% CI of 0.77-0.96), with a trend towards hip fractures being present but not being statistically significant. Both fracture risks were reduced when studies were controlled for studies above 400 IU only, with the protective effect on nonvertebral factures increasing somewhat.
