Background: The present study was done to compare the role of balanced diet versus nutrient supplements in fracture union in patients with proximal tibial fractures managed with Locking Compression Plate.
Materials & methods: 50 patients with proximal tibia fractures were included in the study. These patients were divided in to two groups. Group A includes 25 Patients who were put balanced diet and Group B 25 Patients who were put on nutrient supplements. Patients were diagnosed with proximal tibia fracture after complete history, clinical examination and x rays.

Background: Hypertension is a growing concern in the Indian population with urbanization and developments in work culture and treatment methods.
Aim and objective: To evaluate the influence of serum magnesium levels in gradations of primary hypertension and evaluate its impact on co-morbid conditions.
Methods: Hypertensive patients were screened and included in the study by categorizing them in to grade I and II based on blood pressure levels. Socio-demographic, physical and systemic examination details were recorded with pre-designed questionnaire; electrolyte levels, fasting blood sugar, status of retina and heart were assessed and analyzed using t-test and logistic regression.
Results:Total 100 patients in the study, mean age was 59.3±14.79 years; male predominance (61%); normal retina (83%) and presence of pre-diabetic conditions (67%) was observed, with normal serum magnesium levels in majority (76%). Serum magnesium levels were significantly associated with grade I (P = 0.0173) patients; influencing systolic and diastolic blood pressure values (r = -0.3552, P = 0.003; r = -0.2160, P = 0.0309, respectively).
Conclusion:The optimal values can be further established by evaluation of large sample size, quality of life during treatment, and influence of co-morbidities/complications of hypertension, among others.

 Results: that a significant difference between age and using supplements in the study while Chi-square 24.413& p-value= 0.001. Most age of participants use supplements from 23-35years were constitute (30.0 %), the gender that no significant difference between using supplements and gender in the study while Chi-square 1.437& p-value 0.911 less than 0.05 , regarding education show that significant difference between education status and using supplements in the study while Chi-square 14.827& p-value more than P=0.022.
.Conclusion: Supplements were commonly used among female students, The prevalence of dietary supplement use was high and was significantly associated with socio demographic and lifestyle factors.A substantial proportion of populations take supplements. Further investigation into the social, psychological and economic determinants that motivate the use of supplements is required, to ensure appropriate use of supplements among adults and the most commonly used supplements.
