CPC-036 Connection Between Bone Fractures, Vitamin D Level and Low-Energy Falls in Hospitalised Elderly Patients
European journal of hospital pharmacy. Science and practice
The ageing of the population in developed countries is a growing problem today. Prevalence of chronic diseases, such as osteoporosis, increases with age. It is estimated that 900,000 people (9% of the population) above the age of fifty suffer from osteoporosis in Hungary.

Many studies have proven that a low vitamin D level increases the risk of bone fractures. Adequatedoi:10.1136/ejhpharm-2013-000276.493 fatcat:vpw5xm7cwveqdficruxhb5gdpq
