Swallowing Changes

Changes in speaking, chewing and swallowing are common in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and can interfere with important parts of life, such as the ability to eat well. But they don’t always have obvious signs, and many people with PD are not aware of these difficulties, or don’t know how to describe them.
