Use of proton pump inhibitors and risk of hip fracture in relation to dietary and lifestyle factors: a prospective cohort study. OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between chronic use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and risk of hip fracture. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: Nurses' Health Study, which originally recruited from the 11 most populous states in the US. PARTICIPANTS: 79,899 postmenopausal women enrolled in the Nurses' Health Study who provided data on the use of PPIs (...) and other risk factors biennially since 2000 and were followed up to 1 June 2008. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Incident hip fracture RESULTS: During 565,786 person years of follow-up, we documented 893 incident hip fractures. The absolute risk of hip fracture among regular users of PPIs was 2.02 events per 1000 person years, compared with 1.51 events per 1000 person years among non-users. Compared with non-users, the risk of hip fracture among women who regularly used PPIs for at least two years was 35
