Las relaciónes en el Parkinson

La enfermedad de Parkinson (PD, por sus siglas en inglés) no solo afecta profundamente a la persona que recibe el diagnóstico, sino también a sus familiares y amigos. Con frecuencia, una persona — un cónyuge, un compañero, un hijo, un padre o una madre, u otro ser querido — adopta el rol de cuidador principal de la persona con PD.

Como elegir el medico adecuado

Tenía 44 años cuando por primera vez noté un leve temblor en mi dedo meñique izquierdo. Mi internista lo atribuyó a que yo era “una mujer madura quien pronto tendría su nido vacío.” ¿Por qué entonces, me pregunté con las palabras inmortales de Jerry Lee Lewis, no había visto “muchos más temblores por ahí” entre mis amigas?

Women and Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) affects an estimated 10 million men and women worldwide. Women have been shown to have a lower risk of developing PD, and research suggests that there are differences in the way that men and women experience Parkinson’s. Studies indicate that women diagnosed with PD report different symptoms, more often report side effects and changes in their symptoms throughout the day (“fluctuations”) and receive lower quality healthcare than men.
