I have a balance issue which has caused me many falls and ruined a lot of my joints. Anyone out there in a similar position?

Hi Nan, I have a friend who has this problem and when she goes out she uses walking poles when she is having a bad day. They might be worth trying to give you more confidence when you are out walking.

Please write your comments here...I am new to Silversurfers and I have diabetes 2, I am managing quite well but I feel we are not given enough information as to what readings should be (I have a an Accu Chek monitor and take my own readings) but there are questions I need to ask, without having to make appointments with a diabetic nurse. I would much rather ask questions and get answers on my computer.
