Can Gluten Sensitivity mimic neurological diseases. For example: Parkinson's
My mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2006. She has been told by her physicians that she has a very mild case of the disease. She has no tremor. When looking over the symptom checker page for gluten sensitivity, I checked quite a few symptoms my mom has been showing.
She has also been diagnosed with Osteoporosis and irritable bowel syndrome. If she eats whole wheat toast for breakfast, she has to quickly run to the bathroom each time.
My question is, could she have an allergy to gluten and not Parkinson's Disease? I read on another site where unsteady gait is another Symptom of Gluten Intolerance
and I see on your symptom checker the discolored teeth is another symptom. She has both of these.
She is now being treated for Parkinson's and Osteoporosis.
