Parkinson's disease is a disorder of the brain that leads to tremors and difficulty with walking, movement and coordination. It most often develops in people age 50 or older and is one of the most common nervous system disorders of the elderly, according to the National Institutes of Health. There is no known cure.
The major 12-year study in Taiwan found that while diabetes increases the risk of Parkinson's 2.2 fold, including metformin in the therapy negates that risk.
“An exciting aspect of the finding is that metformin seems to be working to protect the brain against neurodegeneration which contributes to Parkinsonism. This means it may also be considered a relevant therapy for the prevention of dementia as well,” said Mark Wahlqvist, professor at the National Health Research Institutes in Taiwan and lead author of the study.
Metformin is the first-line medication for patients with type 2 diabetes. This affordable and commonly prescribed oral drug lowers blood glucose levels by decreasing the amount of glucose produced by the liver and enhancing insulin action. It's a type of biguanide drug used since the 1950s with a relatively safe record.
Researchers also found that use of sulfonylurea drugs, a common treatment for diabetes, further increases the risk by about 57 percent.
Sylfonylureas are a category of oral medications that stimulate the beta cells of the pancreas to release more insulin, according to the American Diabetes Association. Sylfonylurea drugs have been in use since the 1950s and include glipizide, glyburide, glimepiride and chlorpropamide.
Researchers theorize that metformin may re-set the regulation of energy metabolism in the brain cells. They suspect that exercise and diet may have the same energy regulating effect.
The study does not examine the mechanism behind metformin's protective effect on the brain. Researchers say that additional research is needed in this area.
Past research has shown that metformin reduces cardiovascular mortality and several cancers, including those of the large bowel, liver and pancreas.

In most cases where the thyroid is dysfunctional, symptoms arise relating to the imbalance of the thyroid hormones. Conventional medicine generally treats people with synthroid, or its generic equivalent, which is a preparation of t4, one of the two primary thyroid hormones. Some people do not respond well to synthroid and need additional supplementation with t3, the cellular active thyroid hormone. In spite of adjustments made by doctors to some patient’s hormone supplementation, unwanted symptoms may still be present affecting the patient’s lifestyle and overall health. Homeopathic remedies are useful on their own and in conjunction with conventional medicines in relieving these symptoms. Always consult your physician and an experienced homeopath for treatment for any thyroid disorders, including autoimmune thyroid diseases such as graves and hashimoto’s disease.
The homeopathic remedy iodum is indicated for patients experiencing hyperthyroidism, according to Dr. William boericke, in the materia medica and repertory. The person may feel very hot, agitated, and shaky with trembling hands and heart palpitations. There may be an increased appetite, with a desire to eat all day long, resulting in obesity; however, the individual may also have an increased metabolism and not be able to gain weight. Given in controlled doses and the correct potency, iodum may help regulate the thyroid and the pituitary gland, the source of thyroid stimulating hormone.
Fucus vesicelosus, or sea kelp, helps thyroid conditions where there is an under active thyroid with slow metabolism, according to the boericke. The remedy has the power to stimulate the thyroid and pituitary gland, helping to adjust the amount of thyroid stimulating hormone, and boost metabolic processes. When used correctly, this powerful remedy offers relief from many thyroid conditions and successfully reduces a myriad of symptoms, such as promoting weight loss, relieving sluggishness and fatigue, alleviating headaches, muscle pain and joint discomfort, and overcome many other unwanted symptoms of thyroid dysfunction.
Additionally, this remedy also has the ability to suppress an overactive thyroid when given in higher potencies and larger doses. Fucus vesicelosus should never be self-administered. It should only be used under the supervision of an experienced homeopath that can monitor your case closely. Never adjust your dose or change the potency of the remedy without first consulting your practitioner. Dietary kelp is contraindicated while taking homeopathic fucus vesicelosus.
Kali carbonicum is indicated for individuals who suffer from a slow metabolism, often seen in hypothyroidism. The remedy may relieve symptoms of coldness and chilliness, pain in the back, chronic constipation, indigestion, flatulence, belching and a sour taste in the mouth. The person needing this remedy may be aggravated in general by drinking icy-cold drinks, which can produce nausea and vomiting. Patients experiencing chronic bronchitis, sinus infections, obesity, fatigue and who are hypothyroid are excellent candidates for this remedy.
Never treat yourself for thyroid problems. Any form of thyroid disease is complex and treatment needs to be supervised by an experienced health practitioner.
So consult the doctor privately.
