Spills can spell disaster. If you or someone you love is prone to falling, here are some basic prevention tips:
An important preventive measure is early diagnosis for conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and vestibular dysfunction. Another way to prevent falls is to get healthy-decrease your risk of hardening of the arteries by quitting smoking, exercising regularly and adopting a healthy diet. Coordinate your medications to avoid errors-use the same pharmacy and primary care physician for all of your prescriptions.
