α-Synuclein Genetic Variants Predict Faster Motor Symptom Progression in Idiopathic Parkinson Disease

Research presents the first evidence that SNCA
(α-synuclein) is an important and strong predictor of faster motor symptom decline in idiopathic PD. SNCA may be a promising target for therapies and may help identify patients who will benefit most from early interventions. This is the first study to link SNCA to motor symptom decline in a longitudinal progression study.

Tools for Meal Planning

In spite of what you might have heard, having diabetes does not mean you have to give up all the foods you enjoy. However, learning to eat healthy, satisfying meals is an important part of your treatment.

Good diabetes meal planning includes:

* understanding how different foods and the amount eaten affect your blood sugar

* choosing healthy foods

* eating your meals at the times appropriate for your diabetes treatment

Eating well-balanced meals in the correct amounts may help you keep your blood sugar level as close to normal (non-diabetes level) as possible. This might sound like a lot of work, but your doctor and/or dietitian can help you create a meal plan that is best for you. There are many tools available to help you follow your diabetes meal plan.

Alzheimers & your loved ones:

One in three families is affected by Alzheimer's disease. The progression of this fatal illness ranges from two to 20 years. Presently, there is no known treatment or cure. Due to the nature of the caregiving burden, Alzheimer's disease seriously impacts the lives of everyone in the family.

Often the only help available is through organizations like this. In the 29 years that this organization has been in existence, countless families have sought and received there help. Currently, they serve over 3,800 families in Southwest Florida.

Funding for the Alzheimer's Support Network is entirely through individual and corporate donations. One fund raising event, called "Elephant Fest" is held each year. All of the funds raised stay in the community and are used for direct service.

We are proud to say that all administrative work is done by volunteers. Those who wish to become involved with the important work of the Alzheimer's Support Network or who need the services provided are encouraged to contact them directly at (239) 262-8388.
