Alternative healthy eating index and risk of hip fracture: a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis.

J Hum Nutr Diet 2019 Feb 25;32(1):98-107. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Students' Scientific Research Center, Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS), Tehran, Iran.

Background: A high adherence to healthy dietary patterns, such as an alternative healthy eating index (AHEI), has been suggested to have protective effects on bone mineral density and to decrease the incidence of fractures, although the evidence for this is not clear. We conducted a dose-response meta-analysis of available observational studies aiming to assess the association between adherence to a healthy dietary pattern, as assessed by the AHEI score, and risk of hip fracture in the general population.

Methods: Studies published up to March 2018 were identified on the basis of a literature search in PubMed, Scopus and ISI Web of Science databases using Mesh and non-Mesh relevant keywords. Read More
