Can a blood test determine parkinsons disease?
Can a blood test determine if you have parkinsons disease. im scared!
No, but bloodwork can determine if you carry one of the mutated PD genes. Even if you do, it doesn't always mean you will develop PD. I had my bloodwork drawn two months ago (mid December), and just got my genetic results back last week. Turns out I do have a variant on the LRRK2 gene. I have a PD dx, and am young, so they did the bloodwork on me to find out more.

Got my free spit bottle and an invitation to take a million survey's (something I try to avoid). I spat spit in my bottle . I've got 50 percent of the surveying done, and the wait is on for the DNA results. Let you know what percentage I fall in.

I did that over two years ago. I fell in the unlikely to get PD class, but found hundreds of 3rd to 6th cousins all around the world who wanted to know my genetic history!
I am not a human being trying to have a spiritual experience; I am a spiritual being having a (sometimes difficult) human experience.

I also fell into the unlikely class and found cousins I never heard of. Mom knew of a few and said not to make contact!!! Too funny!
