  1. Fulltext. Vitamin K intake and hip fractures in women : a prospective study.

    Article - En anglais



    Vitamin K mediates the gamma-carboxylation of glutamyl residues on several bone proteins, notably osteocalcin.

    High serum concentrations of undercarboxylated osteocalcin and low serum concentrations of vitamin K are associated with lower bone mineral density and increased risk of hip fracture.

    However, data are limited on the effects of dietary vitamin K. Objective : We investigated the hypothesis that high intakes of vitamin K are associated with a lower risk of hip fracture in women.


    We conducted a prospective analysis within the Nurses'Health Study cohort.

    Diet was assessed in 72327 women aged 38-63 y with a food-frequency questionnaire in 1984 (baseline).

    During the subsequent 10 y of follow-up, 270 hip fractures resulting from low or moderate trauma were reported.


    Women in quintiles 2-5 of vitamin K intake had a significantly lower age-adjusted relative risk (RR : 0.70 ; 95% Cl : 0.53,0.93) of hip fracture than women in the lowest quintile (<109 mug/d), Risk did not decrease between quintiles 2 and 5 and risk estimates were not altered when other risk factors for osteoporosis, including calcium and vitamin D intakes, were added to the models.

    Risk of hip fracture was also inversely associated with lettuce consumption (RR : 0.55 ; 95% CI : 0.40,0.78) for one or more servings per day compared with one or fewer servings per week), the food that contributed the most to dietary vitamin K intakes. (...)
