nutrition, vitamin and parkinson's by Dr.Kathrynne

nutrition,vitamin and parkinson’s
Nutrition are importance for those with Parkinson Disease. Nutrition won’t cure PD or slow its progression.

There are vitamins and mineral at certain level are harmful for Parkinson’s Patients especially Folic Acid, Chromium,Copper, Ferritin,Magnessium,Selerium,Zinc and vitamin B6.

Therefore doctor who prescribes vitamins for PD has to routinely monitor them. Some of them may be good for general health and well being but not have been definitively proven to help PD. CoQ10 and creatine are currently under study. We will know about these two drugs very soon. But for the rest, they have not been proven.

I have once blood test to measure my vitamin level in Add Life Anti Aging Bangkok. I have suffered low blood pressure by taking some of the vitamins. As the result I admitted to Hospital. I have T.I.A (mini stroke) still yet to answer.



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

Thank you for your comments. I would be interested in seeing the studies on these supplements with relation to low blood pressure, if you care to send them.

Best regards,
