Advances & More News / Newly reported from Belgium: Specific GI Syndromes Linked to Parkinson Disease

Specific gastrointestinal (GI) syndromes including dysphagia, gastroparesis, constipation, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) without diarrhea are associated with Parkinson disease (PD), according to a study published online Aug. 24 in Gut. Bo Konings, from the KU Leuven University Hospitals in Belgium, and colleagues performed a combined case-control and cohort study using the U.S.-based medical record network TriNetX. Individuals with new-onset idiopathic PD were compared to matched negative controls (NCs) and patients with contemporary diagnoses of Alzheimer disease (AD) and cerebrovascular diseases to examine preceding GI syndromes.
