Treatment To Prevent Fractures in Men and Women With Low Bone Density or Osteoporosis: An Update

Slide: 24 of 40

Benefits: Exercise and Dietary Supplementation (1 of 2)

The evidence is insufficient to estimate benefits from exercise or to identify the duration, intensity, or type of exercise program that will decrease fracture risk.

Vitamin D (>800 units taken orally), taken in combination with calcium, may reduce fracture risk in people who are institutionalized. The strength of evidence for this finding is moderate. However, evidence is lacking for clear benefit of vitamin D when taken alone for the general population.
