Okay, so everyone trips over their feet once in a while, but, if you or your loved one is frequently falling, this could be a warning sign of Alzheimer’s disease. “A 2011 study presented at Alzheimer's Association International Conference in Paris looked at brain scans of 125 older adults and also asked them to keep track of how often they slipped and stumbled during an eight-month span. The results? Those participants who showed early signs of Alzheimer’s also happened to fall down more often” (everydayhealth.com).
