Supplements and Injury

Just read an article that states about 5% of all pharmaceutical ER visits are due to dietary supplements.  This accounts for about 23,000 visits yearly.  This also means 95% of those ER visits (roughly 440,000) are from prescription meds.  Supplements are unregulated by the FDA however the manufacturers cannot make unsubstantiated claims not backed by scientific study.  Many however do.  I utilize supplements in my practice for a variety of reasons however all are used for therapeutic value and based upon studies that show efficacy.  When taking supplements, one should research the ingredients and decide what particular need is being addressed, what the supplement is used for, what its effects are and are those effects going to impact your particular problem. Also know that some supplements can interfere with meds and vice versa. Stay informed!
