What are the risk factors for Parkinson’s disease?
Genetics and environmental factors might both play roles in developing Parkinson’s disease. Examples include older age, family history of Parkinson’s disease, being a man, and ongoing exposure to environmental toxins like pesticides and herbicides.
How is Parkinson’s disease diagnosed?
To diagnose Parkinson’s disease, your provider reviews your symptoms and medical history. They might complete physical and neurological examinations and recommend blood tests, MRIs, ultrasound, or other specialized tests to rule out other disorders that might cause the same symptoms.
How does medical marijuana help with Parkinson’s disease?
In addition to taking medications if your doctor recommends it, eating healthy foods, and getting enough exercise, medical marijuana can reduce pain and other unpleasant symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease.
