ABSTRACT
The article discusses research being done on the risk factor for hip fractures. It references a study by Y.-X. Yang et al published in the 2006 issue of the "Journal of the American Medical Association." It is significant that a person who utilizes proton pump inhibitors (PPI) for acid suppression has an increased risk for hip fracture. The risk of hip fracture in high PPI use is stronger in men than in women.
