All the best,
I’m glad @jason.mod has already welcomed you to the forum and has pointed you in the direction of the Parkinson UK website.
I just wanted to add that we know there is ongoing research into the role of the gut in Parkinson’s, from gut imbalances altering progression of the condition, to a theory that Parkinson’s may originate in the gut.
Parkinson’s UK continues to fund studies looking into this area. We have written a research blog which includes some preliminary findings from scientific research looking into which bacteria in the gut plays a role in Parkinson’s, as well as an interview with the researcher who is carrying out the work.
