I care for a mom with PD and her weight issues have changed over time. In the first years after her diagnosis, she gained weight due to loss of ability to exercise and depression. As her disease has progress to the advanced stages, she has started to lose weight due to loss of muscle tone. I would recommend close monitoring of weight issues with a doctor to ensure that it doesn't contribute in other ways to loss of mobility.
