Hello there. My husband, age 49, has just been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. We haven't even been to a neurologist yet, still waiting for the appointment. I'm puzzled about how to cut down on the protien in his diet. Does anyone know of any books I could read on the subject or any web sites that might help? Also, does this make a huge difference? The diet I mean. I was also wondering if he should be walking for exercise and how much is too much. For example, do you stop when you're tired or push yourself to do a little more to build strength? I must have a million questions. We feel scared and confused. I suppose anyone diagnosed with a major illness does. Do headaches go along with Parkinson's Disease or would that be something else? Any information any of you can give me would be so much appreciated. Thank you
