Abstract

Lingual strength and levodopa responsiveness of tongue pressure were assessed in 28 persons with idiopathic Parkinson’s disease (PwPD) compared to healthy controls. Lingual strength was then compared across equally divided cohorts: 1. Healthy Controls, 2. PwPD on a regular diet, and 3. PwPD on a modified diet.
