Symptoms: A person with Parkinson disease gradually loses the ability to totally control body movements. They occur because the condition gradually kills nerve cells that release dopamine. Dopamine is a neuron transmitter, a chemical that carries messages from one nerve cell to another. It causes tremors of shaking. Time passes and the hands and legs become stiff. The person’s handwriting becomes smaller and it will be harder to speak. Walking becomes a shuffling movement.
How do you know if a person has Parkinson? Well you have to watch the patient’s movement first his hands shiver and he can’t wear slippers his foot will be very loose. Then he will eventually shuffle his movement.
There is still no cause, but scientists do know how Parkinson’s disease affects the brain and the body. For some reason nerve cells in the brain begin to die. The cells normally begin to make a chemical called dopamine. When the amount of dopamine in the low the person loses control over the body’s movements. They also say that it’s heredity but there is no proof.
Parkinson is a disease that affects the nervous system which affect the movement of hands, legs, and facials movement. Parkinson is a disease that used to affect people between the age of fifties and sixties but now it affects the age between the thirties and fifties. It was named after a doctor named James Parkies he first described it in 1817.
Parkinson is a disorder that gradually destroys brain cells. Parkinson disease due to unknown causes is the most common form of a group of disorders with similar symptoms called Parkinsonism. Other causes of Parkinsonism include certain drugs and exposure to toxic quantities of carbon monoxide.
There is no cure but you can accommodate this disease so it can delay the deterioration of the disease. They usually take tablets. However doctors can treat the symptoms. Certain medicines can increase the number of dopamine in the cells. Others slow down its loss. These medications can temporarily ease the affects of the diseases. Therapy helps too. There is only 1% of it to recover after surgery.
At the end the person with Parkinson will eventually die, but Parkinson is not a fatal.
But I’m heart braking today that there is no way to prevent it and no cure so BECAREFUL! This is all that I have so I hope you liked it!
