I'm new to this forum. I was diagnosed when I was 42. I found out from 23 and Me I have LRRK2 gene. In fact, they asked if my first degree relatives would give genetic samples. They all agreed. I am an Ashkenazi Jew and have participated in the clinical trials for Ashkenazi Jews (they are looking for biomarkers) as well as a trial for early onset (Michael J. Fox Foundation Trial Finder has more info on the trials.
My paternal grandfather had PD as well as one of his brothers. What is it you would like to know?
