23 Jun: [Webinar Recording] YOPD Council: Nutrition

One of the most common questions we’re asked is this: “What should I eat now that I’ve been diagnosed with Parkinson’s?” The answer is that there is no one answer. Just as each person with Parkinson’s experiences different symptoms, each person reacts differently to different types of diets. During this session, our panel members, along with a registered dietician who also has Parkinson’s, talk about food as medicine.

Parkinson’s presents before the age of 40 in about 5% of cases, making pregnancy post-diagnosis fairly uncommon. But for those of us who do add to our family following a diagnosis of YOPD, we worry about the effects of Parkinson’s or the medications we take on the health of our baby and how our symptoms will respond to the new demands that pregnancy places on our bodies. Many questions come to mind.
