The supplements that I have been taking consist of a mixture of vitamins and trace elements (selenium, manganese, copper).

I wonder whether these supplements can cause side effects to my body.

Would you recommend these supplements to your Parkinson's patients and arrange for blood tests to measure their levels in the blood?


to help the PD patients aware the diseases and encourage to set up support groups to educate the patients and their immediate families

The most common supplements are multivitamins, CoQ10 and creatine. The rest we examine for benefits versus side effects.
