Iâve seen on the web that there are companies that are selling stem cell treatment, and claiming that it leads to a significant improvement in the condition. Would you recommend this treatment to people with Parkinson's symptoms? Do they work?
Current medical status: I have had symptoms of Parkinsons disease since 2003. These now affect both hands. I also have problems with balance.
Current medical treatment: Mirapexin
The treatment of Parkinson's disease with stem cells is still in an experimental stage. Experiments on the animals are very promising but there are still many problems to be solved until this treatment becomes available for treating people.
