What Can Happen In Two Months?
I just finished a series of 5 articles about Alzheimer’s disease, which my sister-in-law died from a few weeks ago,
and now my wife has been confirmed that she has Parkinson’s disease.
I know that so far nobody has died from Parkinson’s, but it still has it’s draw backs.
This hasn’t come as a complete surprise because she’s had some minor symptoms beginning to show.
What Is Parkinson’s Disease?
It’s a disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement, often including tremors.
When an older person is diagnosed with Parkinson’s it’s advancement is described as slow compared to that of younger people the have been diagnosed with it.
Fortunately, the FDA had approved a drug called carblevo which has helped my wife tremendously. She has more confidence and less tremors. Prior to using this medication, she was depressed and not interested with the things she normally did daily.
Her neurologist was very happy with the results she exhibited. Fortunately he didn’t have to increase her dosage.
On the other hand, on December 23, 2019, it was determined that I had type 2 diabetes.
It was a little disturbing to say the least. I hadn’t shown any of the symptoms that are usually exhibited with the disease.
My endocrinologist decided on a path to reduce my blood sugar using a drug that would work to reduce that blood sugar to acceptable levels.
After a week and a few days the treatment appears to be working.
I guess we’ve been fortunate to have great physicians treating us in our senior years.
Though out our lives, we encounter many things, but you can’t give up or lose faith.
That’s how our year ended. We will continue the new year with a positive outlook and work toward having a great year.
Hopefully all of you will have a great year.
