Parkinson's sepsis and pneumonia


#1

My dad has battled for nearly 20 years and we’ve adapted as it’s progress. He was taken into hospital with double pneumonia and sepsis 3 weeks ago. Miraculously he pulled through. The trouble is now he just won’t wake up. He is sometimes a little responsive but very seldom opens his eyes. The doctors are very confused! Has anyone else experienced anything similar? They will be taking his feeding tube out soon so we need him to be more alert to begin to eat properly.
Any advice / suggestions / experiences shared welcome!

Myself I’d aim for serum level of 120nmol/L and I’d use large doses to get level up fast.
D3 has pronounced effects on brain eg depression…its a hormone.And barely on the radar of UK clinicians.
