Shaking hands "tremor"

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

my mother (67), suffers years of hypofunction of the thyroid gland. Six months ago, celiac disease was diagnosed. She has a diet for about 5 months. She sometimes shakes her hand. We have to worry about Parkinson, or there is a link with celiac disease? My mother is very moving and is going a few miles every day. Thank you for your feedback and your time.

There are lots of reasons for shaking hands.  What does the doctor say?

While it could be related to celiac disease or it could be the start of Parkinson’s, it might be a simple palsy.  This hand shaking happens in my family.  It has for generations.    It affects some others in my family differently.  They shake their heads.  We call it  “Bobble Head Syndrome” , not sure that is the medical term.  Best to have your mother checked by a doctor.

Tremors can be caused by vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamins B 12, B1, B6, Vitamin E and magnesium are important to nerve and muscle function.  Many vitamins are often low in newly diagnosed Celiacs.  B12 absorption is less efficient as we age.  Your mother might benefit by getting checked for nutritional deficiencies.

Hope this helps.

Johny_Cage,

I didn't see where knitty kitty mentioned B-3.  It is best to take it as the non-flushing Niacinmaide form with each meal. It usually take 3 months to notice an improvement often when taking B-Vitamins because it takes that long to fill up the liver where we store most of our B-vitamins.

see this link about B-vitamins and depression entitle *B*  "Vitamin supplementation for 1 year improves mood.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7477807/

Also see this article from nutraindgreidents about ow some Parkinson disease can be helped with Niacinamide supplementation.

https://www.nutraingredients.com/Article/2017/01/11/Vitamin-B3-may-benefit-those-with-Parkinson-s-disease

they note it might only work in specific parkinson patients but it might be worth trying.

You might try a homoecysteine tablet too or taking a b-complex has the same b-vitamins found in a homecycysteine tablet.

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/6471099_Homocysteine_and_Parkinson's_disease_A_dangerous_liaison

there are making break throughs every day (literally) see the new research on PD and intense exercise. 

Hang in there.  There is more hope than ever.

Here is the latest research on Parkinson's disease and intense exercise from the NYtimes.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/13/well/move/exercise-may-aid-parkinsons-disease-but-make-it-intense.html

***this is not medical advice but I hope it helps you to know headway is being made on Parkinson disease if your mom is having tremours and you suspect PD.

my heart goes out to you -- my mom had dementia and suspected but never confirmed alzheimer's.

Again I hope this is helpful.

posterboy by the grace of God,
