How is Your Balance? 3 Easy Exercises

Poor balance can make you dizzy and unsteady on your feet. It can also cause you to do things like miss a stair step, bump into furniture, or trip over the family pet. In the worst situations, stumbles can lead to falls and potentially serious injuries.

Falling can definitely be a concern if you live with diabetes and are managing complications linked to poor balance. These complications include peripheral neuropathy or nerve damage (loss of sensation in the feet, legs, and hands), retinopathy (damaged blood vessels in the eyes), and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Other conditions such as cataracts and glaucoma can also present challenges.

But do not let fear get in your way when it comes to staying active! Exercise can help strengthen both body and mind, and actually lessens your risk of falling.
