Exposing the Risk of Fatigue in Elderly Patients with Parkinson’s Disease
Chinese scientists have found that excessive fatigue threatens people over 40 with Parkinson’s disease.
The risk of developing Parkinson’s disease increases by 87% in people over 40 with signs of fatigue, physical weakness and fatigue.
The study by scientists from Huazhong University and Wuhan University of Science and Technology in China was published in the journal JAMA Neurology.
To study how fatigue, fatigue, exercise intolerance and loss of physical strength are associated with Parkinson’s disease, Chinese scientists requested a license to use data from the British Biobank, the UK’s largest electronic patient database, and then compiled a vast database. a list of 314,998 people who did not have Parkinson’s disease or dementia (impaired memory, thinking and analytical abilities) at the time of inclusion in the study. The average age of thin and weak people over 40 was about 56.1 years, then they were followed for 12 years, and scientists found among them 1916 cases of overt Parkinson’s disease.
It turned out that the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease increased by 87% in people over 40 with signs of fatigue, physical weakness and fatigue. And for those who had not yet reached exhaustion, but were still predisposed to primitive asthenia, the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease increased by 26%. Signs of wasting were assessed as low body weight, weakness in the arms and legs, and inactivity.
It should be noted that the highest risk of developing Parkinson’s disease was in persons with a genetic predisposition to this disease and older than 40 years. However, it’s certainly not worth exhausting yourself with unnecessary loads after 40 years, it’s enough to rest regularly to restore strength.
According to the World Health Organization, this disease (Parkinson’s disease) is currently incurable and can only be controlled through comprehensive care, including medication. The disease results from a complex interaction of genetic and environmental factors (such as pesticides, solvents, and pollution). air). The disease progresses throughout life, so a new study points to risks that must be taken into account. In addition, there are a number of studies that show a reduced risk of developing dementia (impaired memory and thinking) in people over 40 who remain physically and mentally active, but do not overwork.
