Parkinson’s disease(PD)


I believe that everyone is very familiar with Parkinson's disease, but we don't know why Parkinson's disease is caused. So follow me to have a look!

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease affecting the central nervous system, mainly the motor nervous system, with symptoms usually appearing slowly over time, the most obvious early symptoms being tremor, limb stiffness, reduced motor function and abnormal gait, and possibly cognitive and behavioural problems; dementia is quite common in patients with severe disease, and major depressive disorder and anxiety disorders also occur in more than one-third of cases. Other possible concomitant symptoms include perception, sleep, and mood problems. The major motor symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease are collectively known as Parkinson's syndrome.

Unexpectedly, pesticides can cause the probability of Parkinson's disease!

A number of environmental factors may increase the risk of Parkinson's disease, including pesticides, head trauma, farming, or living in the countryside. Suburban environments and drinking water are more likely to be exposed to pesticides, thus indirectly affecting people's risk of developing the disease. Parkinson's disease is not traditionally considered a genetic disease, but 15% of patients have a relative within the first degree of consanguinity (including parents, children, and hand and foot) with Parkinson's disease. At least 5% of Parkinson's disease is known to be caused by mutations in one or more specific genes.

On the topic of the effects of Parkinson's disease on the brain. By screening the brains of a small number of people at high risk, researchers found a malfunction in the serotonin system (also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine and serotonin, or 5-HT for short, and serotonin system in English) in their brains. The serotonin system in the brain is responsible for people's mood, sleep, and activity functions, among other things. Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects nearly 150,000 people in the United Kingdom. It is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that affects the central nervous system, mainly the motor nervous system. Its symptoms usually appear slowly over time, with the most obvious early symptoms being tremors, limb stiffness, reduced motor function and abnormal gait. However, memory, depression and sleep problems may also occur. To date, no cure has been found for Parkinson's disease. However, there are ways to help manage the condition.
