Genetic


#1

in my family we have few people that have parkinson.

my dad has it too, and was diagnosed with LRRK2.

im thinking if i should check if i have the gene too, and i want advice regarding to that.

and also i want to get pregnant soon and thinking if i should prevent my children from dealing with this problem and take out the gene before the pregnancy. but the procedure is tough.

could use any advice.
