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.

    Hi, I’m Roberto Martín, Dr. in Medicine and diagnosed 6 years ago with idiopathic parkinson’s disease, and I live in Spain, I’m a follower and your reader, also Dr. O’Brien, Dr. Hyman, and I’m very interested by Functional Medicine, I understand the connection between the digestive system and the brain, the cause of autoimmune diseases and metabolic syndrome, but in this connection there is a question and a very specific question that I would like to ask you: why do chronic degenerative diseases , from their point of view, appear mostly after 50 years of age? What specific situation determines this?
    Best regards.
    Dr. Roberto Martín
