Death rate from Parkinson's disease U.S. 1999-2018

The death rate from Parkinson’s disease has gradually increased over the last decade. Parkinson’s disease is a nervous system disorder that progressively impacts movement. Symptoms include tremors, slowed movement, rigid muscles, speech changes and the loss of automatic movements. These symptoms start mildly but become more severe as the disease progresses.

Parkinson’s disease death

Parkinson’s disease is usually not considered a deadly disease and many people with the disease have relatively normal life expectancies. Death from Parkinson’s disease results from complications arising from advanced symptoms, such as problems swallowing or falls. Therefore, the death rate from Parkinson’s disease increases significantly with age.

Living with Parkinson’s disease

It is predicted that by the year 2030 there will be around 1.2 million people living with Parkinson’s disease in the United States. A recent survey of Parkinson’s disease patients showed that some of the most common symptoms from the disease included fatigue, tremors or shaking, trouble sleeping, and changes in handwriting. Common cognitive changes involved concentration and attention span, verbal fluency, information processing, and memory.
