What Everyone Ought To Know About Parkinson’s Disease?
When it comes to chronic diseases, here is the sad part: they can not be diagnosed. If they can be diagnosed, there is no treatment for them. Think about cancer—no matter how technologically developed we are, we have failed to come up with an all-encompassing treatment for cancer. Likewise, there are other chronic diseases that are either not diagnosed or have no treatment in place. As a result, millions of precious lives are lost every year. That is why it is our responsibility (yes! Everyone of us) to do our part to avoid this from happening.
Where can you get started, one may ask? Well, you can do many things at an individual level. The least you could do is spread awareness among commoners. For instance, you can collect some fruitful information about the reasons for chronic diseases. Based on these reasons, you can plead with patients to take precautionary measures. That is the least all of us should do.
A report from Health Talks suggests that in 2021, 1.5 million were the victims of Parkinson’s disease. The sad part? A vast majority of patients did not find the right treatment. As a result, they succumbed to death. However, the saddest part is that the stats are not gone. As for the latest updates of 2022, over one million Americans suffer from Parkinson’s disease. While it goes unattained most of the time, not diagnosing it remains yet another grave issue of the day.
Parkinson’s disease is not only found in the U.S; in fact, other European and Asian countries are also struggling with it. To date, there is no proper treatment in place for Parkinson’s disease.
That is why it is the need of the day to know about this disease. Mass awareness is required to prevent this deadly disease from spreading any further. And this is what we are going to focus on in this article.
Now, let’s go ahead and see what this disease is. At the same time, we will also look at the symptoms of ‘probable treatment’ of Parkinson’s disease.
What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a chronic disease where the patient’s subconscious mind does not operate properly. Akin to Alzheimer, PD is a state where the brain fails to produce the required dopamine.
Apparently, the pleasure factor – AKA dopamine – is the foremost component of one’s well-being. Once this is effected, the entire body malfunctions. A neurological disorder kicks in when this malfunctioning sustains for an extended period of time.
Thus, Parkinson’s disease is a neurological disorder that stems due to a lack of dopamine. Unlike other psychological disorders, Parkinson’s disease is difficult to spot. Why? Because it is not apparent. You do not feel it right away. Once it sustains, the symptoms get obvious. That is why precautions are always recommended. If you do not feel the worldly pleasure, this could be a sign of Parkinson’s disease.
At this point, we recommend checking with your doctor. Based on the prescriptions, you must follow the required medications. This way, you will avoid your well-being from the deadly disease.
