BEST PROGNOSTICATOR OF PD RATE OF DECLINE

Recommended Posts

Dear Doc Okun, I read the link below and I find it interesting concerning the prognosis of PD.Despite the fact that a lot of studies is still required to demystify this disease,according to the article below,most doctors give prognosis based on subtypes of PD alone.Because,there is no one size fits all,as regards how PD affects people or reaction to medications,there should still be more categories of PD.In your practice,would you be more comfortable to give prognosis based on age at onset or subtypes?

I use all the data in my practice and I also use an examination as well as the data from the PF Quality Outcome Project (QII) and other studies as well as my own observations over many years.....there is no standardization so I like to individualize to each patient.
