Re: Who is your favorite doctor?

Re: Published Research - General Sleep and RLS (WED)

To that point, in Dr Ondo's recent webinar on Co-Morbid conditions, one of the diseases that has a higher correlation is Parkinson's. Yet at the patient conference last fall, one of the slides showed that Parkinson's patients have high levels of iron in the same area where we have BID. One of the ot...
