Hi My name is Mark and I am 52 years old and I have been diagnosed with PD since 2001. I am at the point now where the amount of Sinemet I take is becoming too large for me to handle the side effects. I have 1-3 panic attack a day. I am wondering if anyone has more PD symptoms after eating a lot of sugary foods. I do not have Diabetes, although my Mom did and me Dad was borderline. My problem is I am a sugarholic. I love cookies, sweet cereal, ice cream, cake, almost any desert. So, somebody tell me if they have the same issue here that I have.
