Losing weight can also make Parkinson's more severe

This being said, the study had in fact found that losing weight could  lead to more severe Parkinson’s disease symptoms.  As had been previously discovered, the research team found that weight loss is rather common in the earliest stages of Parkinson’s disease.  Aside from this discovery however, no study had looked into weight loss and its effect on Parkinson’s disease.  Weight loss was found to increase the prevalence of dementia, reduce life expectancy, and cause the patient to become more in need of intensive care.
