Detect Parkinson's early, delay it, stop it or prevent it

In his lecture “Detect, delay, stop or prevent Parkinson’s disease early” Professor Oertel shares his extensive knowledge and many years of experience with us. Parkinson's disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disease, affects millions of people worldwide. Despite intensive research and development in treatment, it remains a major challenge for patients, families and healthcare professionals.

Professor Oertel will walk us through the latest findings that not only aim to detect the disease in its earliest stages, but also present strategies and therapies that can delay or even stop its progression. He will also discuss preventative measures that could reduce the risk of developing Parkinson's disease.

This lecture is aimed at anyone interested in Parkinson's disease and its impact on the lives of those affected. Prepare for an insightful session that will shed light on the darkness of this disease and offer hope for new avenues in its treatment and prevention.

Eating and drinking for Parkinson's disease - a lecture by Prof. Dr. Ceballos Baumann

Food and drink play a central role in everyone's daily life, but for people living with Parkinson's they can present a number of challenges. In the following lecture we will look at how eating habits can be adjusted to ensure a balanced diet and improve quality of life. Our goal is to develop a deeper understanding of the importance of an adapted diet in Parkinson's disease and to show ways in which enjoyment of eating and drinking can be maintained despite the disease.

Pain in Parkinson’s – a lecture by Prof. Dr. Ceballos Baumann

Welcome to a lecture by Prof. Dr. Ceballos Baumann on a topic that is often overshadowed by the motor symptoms of Parkinson's - pain in Parkinson's.

Parkinson's is a neurodegenerative disease primarily associated with movement disorders. But we are increasingly recognizing that pain can be a significant component of this disease and can significantly impact the quality of life of those affected. Over the next few minutes, we'll take a look together at why pain occurs in Parkinson's disease, how it can manifest, and the challenges it poses for patients and their caregivers. Let's explore together this often overlooked but significant piece in the Parkinson's puzzle.

Hypotheses investigated include inflammation, changes in intestinal flora and hygiene factors. Early intervention such as a Mediterranean diet change could reduce the risk of these diseases. Further research is required to clarify the exact connections.

What you need to know about Parkinson's

When a person with Parkinson's or a relative wants to find out about a possible disease, accompanying symptoms play a crucial role. These can affect different parts of the body, including skin, skeleton, sensory organs and psyche. The severity and occurrence of these symptoms vary from person to person, and it is important to note that some symptoms may have other causes.

The dark side of Parkinson's, on the right lines, German version

6th and final part of the mini-series about Jon Stamford and his experiences with Parkinson's. The series ends on a conciliatory note with a nice anecdote that describes the famous “splinter in your own eye” in a very vivid way.

As a reminder, here is the background to the series:

Produodopa. The new medication standard?

However, the  perspectives changed fundamentally with the introduction of Produodopa®, a subcutaneous infusion solution. Continuous infusion over 24 hours using a portable pump ensures more constant effective levels. The crucial advantage for all of us is that no surgery is required to insert the subcutaneous cannula. This less invasive treatment option is a huge relief for all of us.

The dark side of Parkinson's, the knockout punch

Sometimes it is difficult or embarrassing to talk about the symptoms. Patients may be reluctant to share their experiences with their family doctor, or may not even be aware that this is a component of Parkinson's disease. These short films are designed to provide clues to patients by addressing uncomfortable issues and encouraging them to make a connection with their illness and seek medical help.

Karl Walter, an 80-year-old resident of Karlsfeld, has had an impressive and transformative experience with Parkinson's disease. This condition, characterized by a constant shaking, also known as tremor, had severely affected his ability to carry out everyday tasks. Even basic tasks, such as tying a tie or lacing his shoes, posed major challenges for him.
