Causes of Parkinson’s Disease
Certain brain nerve cells (neurons) eventually deteriorate or die due to Parkinson’s disease. A decrease of neurons that generate the chemical messenger dopamine in the brain is the cause of many symptoms. Dopamine deficiency results in abnormal brain activity, which worsens movement impairment and other Parkinson’s disease symptoms.
- Genes : Particular genetic variations can lead to Parkinson’s disease. If a family member also has Parkinson’s disease, there is an increased risk of developing it.
- Environmental Triggers : Parkinson’s disease may develop later if you are exposed to specific poisons or environmental factors, although the risk is quite low.
Risk factors include
- Age : The risk rises as one becomes older; it mainly affects those who are 60 or older.
- Heredity : The chances of getting the illness increase if one of the relatives has the illness.
- Sex : Men are more likely to experience it than women.
