Metabolic Syndrome & Parkinson’s: Affect on Symptom Progression
What is metabolic syndrome? In my past videos, I’ve discussed the topic extensively. But at its core, it’s a constellation of health issues, including elevated blood pressure, lipid malfunction, carrying around extra weight, and increased blood sugar.
But we should be cautious about metabolic syndrome not only because of the clear health concerns each of these independent issues raise, but because metabolic syndrome is usually a harbinger of great inflammation throughout the body, itself a condition linked to diseases like cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Now though, new science, published in the journal Neurology, is discovering the link between metabolic syndrome and brain degeneration, specifically in Parkinson’s. Let’s take a look at this latest study.
