People with Parkinson disease (PD) were found to be more likely than those without the condition to have orthostatic hypotension, a sudden drop in blood pressure upon standing that can exacerbate the risk of falling.
A healthy diet consisting of fruit, vegetables, and whole grains in middle age may be associated with fewer non-motor symptoms known to precede the diagnosis of Parkinson disease, according to study findings.
Researchers explore the standard pathophysiological and molecular linkages between Parkinson disease (PD) and diabetes, as well as the role of diabetes therapies in the pathological pathways and progression of PD.
Among patients with Parkinson disease (PD), co-occurrence of dementia and hypertension, as well as duration of PD, were significantly associated with mortality due to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), according to a recent study.
Researchers find that monitoring dietary intake in patients with Parkinson disease (PD) could detect possible micronutrient insufficiencies that may exacerbate adverse effects such as constipation. Expanding knowledge on correct medication intake among patients with PD was also cited.
Switching off a “master regulator” of the epigenome called TET2 may protect the brain from the inflammatory damage and neurodegeneration caused by Parkinson disease, according to recent study findings.
