According to Dr. Alastair Noyce, Corresponding Author, Queen Mary University of London, the current research provides results from multiple studies to give evidence that type 2 diabetes not only affects the risk of Parkinson’s Disease, but also promotes its progression. He also emphasises that there are many treatment strategies for type 2 diabetes that may be repurposed for the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease.
With this study, experts conclude that even if a diabetic person doesn’t have Parkinson’s Disease, they must keep their blood glucose levels within the normal range to ensure proper brain health.
