I am 64 and have had 5 fracturs to my bones in the last 2 years i'am in a wheelchair from a stroke can this increase my risk of bone fracturs?
Unfortunately yes. An increased risk of hip fracture has been reported in a cohort study. The risk was significantly increased among patients prescribed long-term high proton pump inhibitors.
