Parkinson's affects men more, doctors raise the alarm: Here are the age groups that can get sick

Parkinson's affects men more, doctors raise the alarm: Here are the age

With the aging of the population, neurodegenerative diseases are also increasing. Parkinson's is one of them. It is caused by the loss of neurons in some areas of the brain where dopamine is produced, the lack of which leads to movement disorders, but not only. It mainly affects people over 50 years old, but there are also patients with Parkinson's at a younger age.

"It's a form of Parkinson's, it's called juvenile, you have Parkinson's disease written in your DNA, it's a small category of patients... the symptoms appear early at 35-40 years old, a very young age for neurodegenerative diseases, as the age group is over 50 years old"

Genes are the main cause but not the only one. Neurologist Entela Basha lists environmental factors and says that it affects men more than women in a ratio of 1.4 to 1 and shows the initial signs.

"Four specific signs, tremors, freezing, slowness in performing actions and loss of balance, to be called Parkinson's I must meet 2 to 3 of these four criteria. But it can definitely be a form of parkinsonism that will be found if it is parkinsonism in the field of another degenerative or trauma-based pathology, cerebral hemorrhage or metabolic infarction. Mainly, individuals who have worked with pesticides, chemicals, farmers, for example, who fertilize the land, have a higher risk than the rest of the urban population to show Parkinson's."

In the absence of a treatment to fully cure the disease, World Parkinson's Awareness Day focuses on managing symptoms as best as possible with individual therapy and lifestyle changes through healthy eating and physical activity.

"You don't lose your life from Parkinson's disease, in advanced stages mortality comes from overlapping diseases, heart attack for example, but mainly these people lose their lives from pneumonia."

According to the World Health Organization, Parkinson's disease could affect more than 12 million people by 2040.
