My Father in Law was diagnosed with Parkinson's approx 6 years ago and this has had a profound effect on him.
One of the most obvious and worrying aspects is weightloss - I would estimate he has lost approx at least 3 stone and he is now down to about 9 stone.
My concern is that it will be this continual weightloss if not stopped that will have a detrimental effect on him. I think he is currently taking Stalevo and Rasagiline.
He visits a Parkinson nurse regularly and they have asked him to see a dietician but they dont appear to be monitoring it as closely as I believe is necessary.
I would be grateful of any advice that can be offered on this subject and also if anyone has managed to reverse the weightloss suffered.
