Allison Willis, M.D., and her colleagues at the Washington University School of Medicine examined the health records of over 29 million Medicare beneficiaries with Parkinson’s.
They identified 138,000 individuals who were diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2002 and followed their medical charts through 2008. [ 6 years ]
•64 percent of people with Parkinson’s died DURING the six-year study.
•After adjusting the data for age, race, and sex, people with Parkinson’s had a nearly four times greater risk of death than people with no disease and nearly double the risk of death than for those living with other common diseases such as colorectal cancer, stroke and ischemic heart disease. People with Parkinson’s had nearly the same risk of death as those who had experienced a heart attack or suffered a hip fracture.
