      Research suggests that a combination of genetic and environmental factors may cause Parkinson’s disease.

      Studies show that some cases of Parkinson’s disease are caused by genetic mutations. Hereditary causes of this disease are rare. Only 15 percent of those who have Parkinson’s disease have a family history of it. For the rest, the cause of Parkinson’s is usually unknown.

      Does anyone else in your family have Parkinson’s? If they do, were you anticipating being diagnosed with the disease yourself, or was it a surprise? If you are the first in your family to have a PD diagnosis, have you talked to your children and/or grandchildren about the possibility that they may one day be diagnosed with PD? Has anyone in your family considered doing genetic testing to see if they might be at risk of developing PD?
