Depression a Key Factor in Health of Parkinson's Patients: Study
Date:11/28/2012

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 28 (HealthDay News) -- Depression is the most important determinant of the health status of people with Parkinson's disease, according to early findings from a large study of Parkinson's patients.

Parkinson's is a brain disease that affects muscle and causes tremors, muscle rigidity and slowed movement.

Studies show that it is common for depression to be undiagnosed or under-treated in Parkinson's patients.

When going to doctors' appointments, a patient should be accompanied by a family member who can provide information about any mood changes they've noticed in the patient.

The Parkinson's Outcomes Project began in 2009 and includes more than 5,500 Parkinson's patients in the United States and three other countries.

"Routine aspects of care are rarely studied, so this research is invaluable in proving that there are vast disparities in Parkinson's treatment and showing which aspects of care really work," Dr. Matthew Stern, of the University of
