BOSTON — Engaging in regular self-management of diabetes may decrease the risk for both falls and fall-related injuries in patients with diabetes and CKD, according to a poster presented at the National Kidney Foundation Spring Clinical Meetings.
“We know that those with diabetes are at an increased risk for falls and those with CKD are also at an increased risk,” Bradley R. Horton, of Ball State University in Indiana, told Healio/Nephrology. “Having these two comorbidities together further increases fall-risk. We sought to determine what factors might decrease this risk.”
