Abstract

Hip fracture patients are at great risk of malnutrition, but documentation of the effect of nutrition supplementation in this group is sparse and inconclusive. The aim of this study was to examine if personalized nutrition advice combined with vitamin K1, Ca and vitamin D could improve bone turnover 4 months after hip fracture.
