Mal de Parkinson y disfagia: síntomas y estrategias

Recognizing a Time for Honor and Hope.

April is Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month, a time to honor patients, their loved ones, and the dedicated professionals searching for treatments and cures. As many as 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, or PD, every year.1 And neurological disorders like Parkinson’s are among the top three causes of swallowing difficulties, or dysphagia.2

In recognition of the links between PD and dysphagia, the makers of Thick-It® dysphagia nutrition solutions have developed an infographic highlighting symptoms to watch for and tips for managing dysphagia in people with PD.
