Sugar killed my dear husband, Richard. Not directly, as with a gun, but as a malicious and seductive accomplice.  Alzheimer’s is called type 3 diabetes, after all.

Richard loved his sweets ever since he was a little kid. He would sometimes eat a whole box of sugary cereal in one sitting, until the top of his mouth was sore.

Or devour four packages of M&Ms at a time. This was not good.

If you google “what is the link between sugar and Parkinson’s, or between sugar and dementia” you will find overwhelming evidence that sugar is not your friend.  Dr. Perlmutter is Board-Certified Neurologist and four-time New York Times bestselling author. He serves on the Board of Directors and is a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, and wrote the article, If You Want to Lower Your Chance of Parkinson’s, Drop the Cookie. 

My new memoir is called Parkinson’s: A Love Story with Dementia for Dessert because of this. And this website is designed to share more on our story, along with information to help others living with Parkinson’s and dementia, specifically Lewy body dementia.

You will find my book Parkinson’s: A Love Story with Dementia for Dessert on Amazon.  Your feedback and reviews are most welcome.
