Proper Nutrition May Prevent More Severe Motor Problems in Parkinson’s, Study Suggests

“A team of international researchers explored the link between Parkinson’s severity and obesity, focusing on whether excess fat was deposited at the hip and thigh areas (gynoid), or at the abdominal region (android). The investigators also assessed if nutritional status might alter the association between disease severity and fat distribution.”

New Treatment Offers Potentially Promising Results for the Possibility of Slowing, Stopping, or Even Reversing Parkinson’s Disease

“The study investigated whether boosting the levels of a naturally-occurring growth factor, Glial Cell Line Derived Neurotrophic Factor (GDNF), can regenerate dying dopamine brain cells in patients with Parkinson’s and reverse their condition, something no existing treatment can do. Potentially promising results of the third arm of the trials, an open access open-label extension study, are reported in the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease.”
