Is Parkinson's Disease Fatal?

Parkinson’s disease is irreversible, which means that it may be treated but never cured completely. However, PD is not fatal on its own.

According to research, people with Parkinson’s disease can expect to live nearly as long as people who do not have the disease. However, some complications associated with this condition may reduce life expectancy slightly. According to the American Parkinson Disease Association, falls and pneumonia is among the risk factors associated with Parkinson’s that can lead to death.
