Falls In Men Prevented With Exercise

Falls in men prevented with exercise

In older men, regular exercise has been found to reduce the risk of falls that lead to serious health complications and negatively impact their quality of life. Study author Dr. Thomas Gill said, “The physical activity program was more effective in reducing the rate of serious fall injuries in men than in women.”

The study included over 1,600 inactive men and women aged 70 to 89, who were either assigned to a long-term, moderate exercise routine or a health education program. Exercise activities included walking, flexibility training, stretching, and balance training.

When both groups were compared, men had a 38 percent reduction in falls if they were in the moderate exercise group.

Furthermore, they had a 53 percent reduction of fall-related fractures and 59 percent lower risk of fall injuries requiring hospitalization.

For women in the exercise group, they did not achieve the same benefits as the men.

Men’s physical activity levels were boosted greater than women’s, and their gait, mobility, and muscle strength also improved more, compared to the women.

Gill concluded, “The results from the current study support continued evaluation of the physical activity program for possible widespread implementation in the community.”

 Health Tip: Exercising With Diabetes

First, speak with your doctor

Participating in sports or exercising don't have to be dangerous if you're diabetic.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends that you:

Talk with your doctor before you begin training or playing.

Ask about any tests or supplies that may help make you safer.

Work with your doctor to determine an appropriate blood glucose range.

Check glucose often during exercise.

Always pack a form of glucose that is easily absorbed.

Exercise with a partner.

Wear a medical ID bracelet that says you're diabetic.

Before, during and after exercise, eat plenty of healthy foods and drink enough fluids.
