I first noticed the symptoms of PD in my mom 10 yrs ago when she was shuffling her feet and bending forward from her waist. Something we all noticed was that although my mom kept eating, even before any treatment, she was losing wt. If I didn't see her for several wks., then the next time I saw her there would be obvious wt. loss. in her face. Her PCP , who doesn't need to be treating people, didn't think a 30lb wt. loss in an elderly person something to be worried about. The neurologists haven't said anything about her wt.
She is now under 100lbs. Is there any way to stop the wt. loss? She's eating but she's just fading away.
