I understand this drug is used to lower blood sugar , Diabetes 2 patients.
What component of this drug is useful in Parkinsons ? Why does it have the potential to slow down progression ?
I read inflammation is a problem contributing to Parkinsons and its progression.
Sugar causes inflammation, cell death oxidative stress ?
Should we avoid sugar in our diets or carry on eating sugary foods then take a drug to reduce blood sugar to reduce inflammation/oxidative stress.
I am not medically trained but trials on diet seem to be lacking as no money to be made, or am I just cynical and ill informed.
A bit of both I suspect, anyone have a easy to understand explanation of how this drug is beneficial to us other than lowering blood sugar. .
