It depends on the medication and the treatment one is given who has the disease and how soon the disease was diagnoised....I also think a person's age has alot to do with it also. Look at Michael J Fox! My cousin was diagnoised in his 60's and he passed away in his 70's....I think he lived about 10 years after the inital diagnosis was given. He had other health problems also.
I can do some checking around if you want me too.

Hi Bo,
I think that each person's experience is different with Parkinson's Disease.

I do have two gentlemen who come to my balance class who are doing very well. They are both in their 60's. Both of them lift weights and attend land and water exercise classes in our athletic club. They're working hard to try to maintain the physical abilities that they have. There is some slow degeneration that is apparent over time, but I hope that we can slow it down with continued physical activity as long as they can.

Do you know someone who has been recently diagnosed?

Muhammad Ali has been battling Parkinson's for a good 20-years caused by repeated blows to the head.
