Parkinson's Disease (PD)

Survivability of Parkinson's Disease (PD)

The survivability of Parkinson’s disease (PD) depends on the severity of complications that may occur in the late stages of the disorder. Parkinson’s itself is not fatal and patients can live a normal life span. The loss of muscle control may lead to choking and falls that could result in a life threatening injury. Some drug therapies can produce significant side effects requiring exact adherence to the regimen prescribed by the doctor.
