Progress for Parkinson’s

In terms of diseases that are degenerative to brain functions, one that affects over ten million people globally en route to becoming the second most common disease of its kind is Parkinson’s disease. It comes about from neurons degenerating in key parts of the brain. Some notable symptoms come in the effect on motor functions like tremoring and stiffening.

New studies, on the other hand, have found that Parkinson’s disease also deals with symptoms unrelated to motor functions and end up being indicative of larger problems to come, meaning that it is not a disease explicitly connected to motor capabilities.

Some symptoms that mark the premotor phase are problems with your sense of smell, tendencies to sleepwalk or act out your dreams, and constipation. Those who may suffer from it may also witness significant amounts of fatigue and indifference.

Parkinson’s disease currently has no cure, but there are treatments that help improve the conditions of those who suffer from it, as well as extending their life spans. Some new developments like drugs can impact the quality of life.

For example, therapies like levodopa and safinamide are used to treat Parkinson’s disease in its earliest stages.

No cure exists for the disease, at the current moment, but every day, researchers are making strides towards improving the conditions of those diagnosed with it.
