A case-control study of hip fracture among the Japanese elderly was carried out in order to assess the risk factors for fractures.
On the data obtained from 249 cases and 498 controls matched with ethnicity, sex, age, and residential area, significant risk factors on the lifestyle by multivariate analyses included drinking more than three cups of coffee daily, living in rural areas in the past, sleep disturbance, stroke with hemiplegia, and sleeping in a (Western-type) bed.
In contrast, in addition to possession of a large body mass index, moderate alcohol intake and eating fish appeared to be associated with a reduced risk of hip fracture.
In conclusion, some traditional Japanese lifestyle characteristics may prevent hip fractures among the Japanese elderly.
