Default Vitamin K and Hip Fracture Risk

In a study involving data from a national survey on the incidence of hip fracture in Japan, and a national nutritional survey of Japan, results found a strong inverse association between intake of vitamin K and incidence of hip fracture in both men and women.

Subjects from 12 regional blocks were included in the analysis. Intake of calcium, magnesium, vitamin D and vitamin K were assessed. While magnesium, vitamin D, and vitamin K in men and women, and calcium in women, were all found to be inversely correlated with incidence of hip fracture, the association between vitamin K and hip fracture was the strongest, for both men and women.

These results suggest that, "…Increasing intake of vegetables and legumes might lead to a decrease in hip fracture incidence in the future. Further, this study suggests that a review of the dietary reference value of vitamin K from the perspective of osteoporosis would be useful."
