New research published in the European Journal of Neurology indicates that an active sexual life is linked with a lower disability and better quality of life in men with early Parkinson's disease.
As part of the study, researchers examined a subgroup of 355 patients. They were followed for two years. The findings were published in the European Journal of Neurology
According to the team of researchers, the findings can prompt specialists who treat patients with Parkinson's disease to periodically inquire about their patients' sexual life.
