UTI's and the effect on Parkinsons med


My dad is being treated for a UTI. Up until this diagnosis he had really been struggling with his mobility. I have heard off another person with Parkinsons that trying to fight off a UTI can really effect how the parkinsons medication works. It makes it less effective. Is this true. He is now on antibiotics and his mobility has improved over the last two days
