In brief: Further Detail
Average age of onset is about 58-60 years old.
However, true pd can be seen as early as late 20's to as late as 80-90's. Typically, the younger the age of onset, the more genetically inheritable & severe. The later the onset the less genetically i heritable & mild. Either way, all must be treated promptly by aneurologist with the best modern approach meds to maximize daily function, health & qol!
