Abstract

Falls in the elderly are very common and represent a serious cause of morbidity, severe disability and death.

Together with the adoption of non-pharmacological measures, supplementation of calcium and vitamin D demonstrated to reduce hip fracture risk, particularly in institutionalized people.
