Hello


#1
Hi all.
I have been following this forum for some weeks now, and found the information extremely helpful. My husband is a 62 year old type 1 diabetic who has been showing increasing symptoms of PD and we have a second appointment with the GP on Monday in the hope of a referral to hospital for assessment. If you have any advice for this important appointment, it would be most gratefully received. I thought now my be a good time to say hello.

Hello and welcome Claire.

Can't really say anything helpful about your GP meeting without knowing more about your husband's condition. All I can offer from my own experience is that when they stop making eye contact with you they have decided you have got it but are probably not going to say so until you have seen a specialist.
Good luck.
