Is Parkinson Disease a rich man disease?

It is not a rich man disease.

It can affect anyone in the world.

Do you agree is it an aging disease?

It is a movement disorders diseases.

It is estimated out of 2-3% at the age above 50 years old are parkinson disease suffers.

Unfortunately we are shortage of PD specialists. As the result some are wrongly disgnosed as aging and no medications are given to slowdown the disease.

Exercises and medications are possiblities to slowdown the disease but they are not for treatment.

PD has 5 stages slowdown your movements.

Every stage takes 3 -5 years to develop. Most PD dies at pneumonia, liver or kidney disease.
