It is very hard to get doctors to take this problem seriously. As soon as I started on sinemet I started packing the pounds on, mainly in my mid-section. I understand this is not uncommon for PwP 60 years and upward (weight LOSS is more common for younger parkies). Have you dealt with this problem? What works for you?
Before you suggest diet and exercise, let me say I never eat more than 1,000 calories a day, I box three times a week and get other forms of exercise. It's depressing to just watch the numbers on the scale rise and not be able to do anything about it. Today when I came home from my neuro appointment I saw I had split a seam in my pants -- and those were my "fat pants!"
