Diagnosis of Parkinson's disease
The identification of Parkinson’s disease is incredibly troublesome in its earlier stages, it goes unnoted or the result is not obtained. There is no direct treatment for Parkinson’s disease and also there is no biopsy or brain scan that confirms the diagnosis. Treatment is completely based on the medical record and a neurologic examination. At present there's no cure for Parkinson, medications will reduce its symptoms and later stages surgery may be done. Medications are in 3 stages- initial stage includes the drug known as levodopa that increase the monoamine neurotransmitter in the brain, the second set of medicine eases a number of the Parkinson’s disease symptoms and also the third set of medicine helps to manage the non-motor symptoms as well as depression.
