We acquire new information about ourselves and the world around us every day, including Parkinson’s. What is something you learned about the disease very recently? How did you learn it? Has that learning change your life or outlook in any way?
I learned that tears contain biomarkers that can detect PD. I’m hopeful that this means PD can be detected years before symptoms emerge, which may help people protect their own neurons via exercise, etc., and lengthen the time between this kind of diagnosis and the emergence of symptoms.
dan, i believe forewarned is fore armed… it seems like so much money is spent on research for a cure or halting progression and no progress seems to be made. we hear about advances like you mentioned and nothing seems to come of it.
