Who do you know that is affected by Parkinson’s disease?
It is estimated that over 8 million people worldwide live with Parkinson’s disease. This disease affects your nervous system and is categorized as a progressive movement disease- meaning that it will get worse over time. The science is still out on this health concern though; there is no standard diagnostic test. The diagnosis depends on a neurological history and observations of physical symptoms. New research is suggesting that a depletion of the neurotransmitter called Dopamine is associated with Parkinson’s and the imaging test called DaTscan can give insights to a patient’s levels.
