Diagnosis for Parkinson’s disease

There is no direct treatment for Parkinson’s disease as well any blood test or brain scan that confirms the diagnosis. Most PD treatments aim to restore the proper of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and dopamine by increasing the dopamine levels. Treatment is totally based on the medical history and a neurological examination. At present there is no cure for PD, medications can lessen its symptoms and later stages surgery can be done. Medications are in three stages- first includes the drug which is known as levodopa which increase the dopamine in the brain, the second set of drugs eases some of the Parkinson’s disease symptoms and the third set of drugs helps to control the non-motor symptoms including depression.
