INTRODUCTION We elucidated the cause and clinical characteristics of malignant syndrome (MS) in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), early-onset parkinsonism (EOP), and other neurological disorders. MATERIALS AND METHODS Subjects were 260 patients with PD or EOP, and three patients with other neurological disorders associated with MS. We studied(More)
We conducted a survey of 111 healthy middle-aged and older women, aged 40 to 80 years, to elucidate the relationships between blood leptin and adiponectin levels and bone mineral density (BMD) in September 2008. We examined the associations between the blood levels of these adipocytokines and the lumbar spine (L2-L4), left femoral, and distal forearm BMD(More)
An 81-year-old man diagnosed with alcohol-induced persistent mild cognitive impairment consulted our clinic presenting with gait disturbance. Between the ages of 20 and 53 years, his alcohol consumption was 1.8 liters of alcoholic sake per day. However, from the age of 53 years onward, his consumption decreased to 360 ml per day. The patient had alcoholic(More)
The prolongation of the average life span of women has been associated with the rapidly aging society. However, serious problem have arisen as a result, such as an increase in the number of bed-ridden elderly patients with osteoporosis-associated femoral neck fracture. As preventive measures against osteoporosis for middle-aged to elderly women, 10,000(More)
Currently, 26% of Japanese women in their twenties are under weight, and therefore at risk of developing various metabolic abnormalities due to an inadequate nutrient intake, which in turn affects the acquisition of a peak bone mineral density (BMD). In this study, we aimed to clarify the effects of menstrual cycle-related changes in body weight and bone(More)
Acoustic analysis was conducted to investigate symptomatic differences in decreased oral alternating motion rates (AMRs) between individuals with spastic and with ataxic dysarthria. The subjects were 6 individuals with spastic dysarthria, 6 with ataxic dysarthria and 6 normal speakers. Monosyllables /pa/ and /ta/ were used to examine alternating motions of(More)
We introduced the relationship between bone change and neurological disturbance in the patients with cerebrovascular disease (CVD) , Parkinson's disease (PD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) . High incidence of osteoporosis and right/left difference in osteopenia are found in the diseases. CVD and PD patients with asymmetrical osteopenia show an(More)
Subcutaneous fat depots play an important role in regulating metabolic profile in Japanese postmenopausal women. We investigated the possibility of neck circumference (NC) as a surrogate marker for metabolic disease risk estimates in Japanese postmenopausal women. We examined the association of NC with several markers of insulin resistance, lipid metabolism(More)
There are no studies in the literature on the effect of exercise in reversing osteoporosis of the upper extremities for people with neurological disorders. The purpose of this study was to explore what conditions respond to a home exercise program for the upper extremities. Sixteen patients, divided randomly into experimental and control groups, were(More)
