Can Parkinson’s Diseases Cause cognitive impairment? - Parkinson’s Diseases 12

Beautiful view, just for illustration

I posted about Parkinson’s diseases that relate to “disturbance of physical movement due to nervous system disorder.” Please read: Why People Could Get Parkinson’s Diseases?

Some examples of motor disorder are:
- trouble in walking
- slowness in moving
- tremor
- stiffness

Recently, researchers found that Parkinson’s diseases not only caused physical movement difficulty, but also affect on brain changes.

These changes in brain have some effects on non-motor disorder:
- to slow ability to think and memorize (cognitive impairments)
- stress
- depression
- difficult to sleep
- less sensory function

The cognitive impairment ranges from mild to severe. The mild is not reduce ability to do normal daily activities, and even not be noticed sometimes.

However, the severe impairments may cause significant problems to pursue daily activities.

Surprising facts that:
- 20% to 50% Parkinson’s patients have mild cognitive ability
- 40% Parkinson’s lead to dementia (Alzheimer’s) diseases.

In addition to Parkinson’s, cognitive dysfunction may relate to vitamin B12 deficiency, thyroid diseases or other illness.

Moreover, based on current understanding, scientists put emphasis on non-motor disorder to manage Parkinson’s diseases. Hope, this approach will have better results in near future.

  10. Parkinson's disease is a terrible disease. Unfortunately, I have in my family who suffer from this damn disease.
    This publication is phenomenal. My applause and praise

    Have a happy week

  11. A lot, I think, has to do with genes & family history with how those inflicted deal with it.

  12. Tanza, I had an uncle who had Parkinsons and Alzeimer's at the same time. Sad... Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  13. Interesting post. This is such a difficult disease with limited help even though it gets a lot of attention in the scientific community. Some wonder if medications to help with physical mobility issues might play a role in cognitive impairment and confusion.

  14. it is a difficult disease but not nearly as bad as Alzheimer's, in my opinion. And loss of mobility would be enough to make me depress.
