Now it is hoped further research could help improve treatments for both conditions, although experts are currently at a loss to explain the relationship between them. Tom Warner, Professor of Clinical Neurology at University College London, who authored the study, said yesterday: “We can now say more definitely that there is a link between diabetes […]
PARKINSON’S disease has several symptoms that can lead to further complications, including dementia. The condition causes a gradual deterioration in the nervous system, which can trigger other conditions, such as lewy body dementia. This symptom is a common sign that you have the condition.
Parkinson’s disease is the gradual deterioration of the nervous system. Symptoms often only appear when the condition is advanced, and can include a loss of smell, tremors and balance problems, among others. Parkinson’s is caused by falling levels of the chemical dopamine in the brain, which is involved in helping control and co-ordinate movements. Its […]
EATING more traditional fish and chips could prevent the onset of Parkinson’s Disease, new research suggests. Scientists say consuming parvalbumim – a protein found in several fish species including cod – can be a “simple way” to halt the degenerative brain disease.
PARKINSON’S disease symptoms tend to get worse over time, and there are a number of warning signs for the brain condition. These are five symptoms of Parkinson’s, including the three major signs.
Parkinson’s disease is a brain condition that tends to get progressively worse over time, according to the NHS. It’s caused by a loss of nerve cells in a certain part of the brain; the substantia nigra. This means the body produces less of the hormone dopamine. It’s the reduction in dopamine that triggers most of […]
Patients recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease that have low levels of vitamin B12 develop symptoms faster than those with higher levels, which suggests supplementation could postpone the progression of symptoms. This is according to a new study published in the journal Movement Disorders. Parkinson’s disease is a condition where parts of the brain become progressively […]
VITAMIN B12 supplements could postpone the progression of symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, new research has found. Known as the “brain booster”, the vitamin is vital for cognitive health, but it is notoriously difficult to absorb through the gut.
