Have you read the article on this web site about the link between a hormone called ghrelin, which increases when your stomach is empty, and may be protective of our precious remaining dopamine making cells.
Before I read this, I had started to get the feeling my madopar didn't work as well after I had eaten. I used to take madopar 2 hours after breakfast and a few hours after lunch, but once I had to increase to thrice a day, switched to half an hour before meals. But on the new regime the madopar seems to wear off much more quickly.
Has anyone else on madopar noticed either feeling more symptomatic after eating, or conversely feeling better PD wise when hungry?
I hate feeling hungry, but maybe I might have a go at going hungry more often. Will be good for my thickening waist anyway...
