I am one of those people that once they get their claws into something I rarely let go.
I enjoy doing bits of research on anything which is of interest.
More often you hit a brick wall eventually.
I have been looking at this deficiency of Vit D in PD plus other deficiencies as they seem to surface in due course.
Lots of information on various health and nutrition sites which seems are informing us it is a common thing with PD.
Am I being so cynical if I believe that these sites are just wanting to selling products?
These sites I suspect will be taking information from many sources, but almost certainly I believe post Diagnosis and while treatment is on going.
Which leads me to this constant Chicken and Egg syndrome debate, which came first?
Did these deficiencies cause the PD?
Or ''the drugs'' cause the deficiencies?
I had blood tests before PD was diagnosed, there was never any mention of deficiencies.
Then came the adverse blood glucose levels after being medicated.
They were not there previous to Diagnosis.
It leads me to believe these deficiencies are all part and parcel of the treatment or are they?
Ask your Doctors and you usually you get a negative.
Ask the drug companies and you get very little information except that which is on the drug sheet in the packet. Try research and you hit a brick wall every way you turn.
I try to take a great interest in anything which concerns me personally and hope it may be of interest to other people with the same condition too.
This is purely out of interest, I am not complaining about my lot in life.
