Alan Alda isn’t letting Parkinson’s disease slow him down.
The former “M*A*S*H” star recently appeared on the “Today” show where he gave fans an update about his battle with the disease.
“I’m good,” said the 83-year-old. “I shake a little, but I’m good.”
The actor said he regularly exercises to help him feel “like a kid,” as well as hold back the progression of Parkinson’s.
“I work out,” he explained. “You can hold back the progress if you do a lot of specific exercises. So I do a lot of crazy things.”

“I march to [John Philip] Sousa music,” he chuckled. “A lot of Sousa music going on all the time [at] my house.”
In July 2018, the Hawkeye Pierce icon appeared on “CBS This Morning” and announced he was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disorder in 2014. But since that revelation, Alda said he’s feeling “good.”
Alda is not only hosting a podcast titled "Clear + Vivid" but he’s also starring in the upcoming film “Marriage Story” alongside Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver.
“I work so hard,” he continued. “But I guess that’s part of it. I feel like a kid because I’m working so far.”
