Hereitary?

  • By arlicohe

    I dont have PD, however, my dad did. I currently already have a seizure disorder.
    My concern is if PD is heritary? I just want to have some idea, so that i can be prepared, unlike my dad was.
    Thank you!

    Hi arlicohe,

    Thanks for your question. This is one I’ve asked myself, too, as my dad has Parkinson’s. In rare occasions, PD sometimes runs in families, but most cases are sporadic. We have a little more information on the subject here: https://parkinsonsdisease.net/basics/. I hope this helps! Thanks for taking the time to comment!

    Take care,
