What are the different types of Parkinson’s disease?
The most common form of Parkinson’s disease is known as “idiopathic Parkinson’s” – which means we don’t know what causes it.
Vascular Parkinson’s is diagnosed when there is an issue with blood supply to the brain.
Juvenile Parkinsonism – In rare instances, Parkinson’s-like symptoms can appear in children and teenagers. This form of the disorder is called juvenile Parkinsonism and is often associated with specific, high-PD risk genetic mutations.
Drug-induced Parkinson’s – is where certain drugs can cause Parkinson’s-like symptoms by blocking dopamine in the brain.
