Five Things to Know about
Parkinson's Disease 

  1. Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative brain disorder that progresses slowly in most people. Most people's symptoms take years to develop, and they live for years with the disease.

  2. As many as one million individuals in the US live with Parkinson's disease. While approximately four percent of people with Parkinson's are diagnosed before the age of 50, incidence increases with age.

  3. Its major symptoms vary from person to person, but can include tremor, slowness of movements, limb stiffness, and difficulties with gait and balance.

  4. The cause of the disease is unknown, and although there is presently no cure, there are treatment options such as medication and surgery to manage the symptoms.

  5. Men are one and a half times more likely to have Parkinson's than women.
