In the Women's Health Initiative clinical trial and cohort study, 36,282 postmenopausal women were randomized to receive either placebo or 1000 mg of calcium plus 400 IU of vitamin D3 daily for an average trial period of 7 years.
In the calcium and vitamin D3 treatment group, hip fracture risk was significantly reduced in comparison with the placebo group. Hip fracture risk was further reduced in the approximately 42% of participants that had no history of calcium or vitamin D supplement usage at the start of the trial. After 5 years of calcium;vitamin D supplementation, hip fracture risk was reduced by approximately 38% in this participant subset.
