About Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 12

Spinocerebellar Ataxia 12, also known as spinocerebellar ataxia type 12, is related to spinocerebellar ataxia 36 and multiple system atrophy 1, and has symptoms including dysdiadochokinesis and head tremor. An important gene associated with Spinocerebellar Ataxia 12 is PPP2R2B (Protein Phosphatase 2 Regulatory Subunit Bbeta), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Akt Signaling and Dopamine-DARPP32 Feedback onto cAMP Pathway. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, cerebellum and eye, and related phenotypes are hyperreflexia and cerebellar atrophy

Major Symptoms of Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 12

Spinocerebellar ataxia type 12 is a neurodegenerative disorder that primarily affects the cerebellum, leading to symptoms such as progressive muscle weakness, stiffness, and difficulty with balance and coordination. The condition can also cause changes in speech and hearing, making communication challenging. Additionally, it may affect cognitive function, including memory, learning, and problem-solving skills.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 12

Suitable lifestyle options for people with Spinocerebellar ataxia type 12 include the following:

1. Stay physically active: This disease affects the body's coordination and balance, so patients should try to stay physically active, such as walking, jogging, and cycling. etc. to help maintain body flexibility and coordination.

2. Avoid excessive fatigue: Spinocerebellar ataxia type 12 may cause patients to feel tired and weak, so patients should avoid excessive fatigue, especially in harsh environments such as high temperatures or high altitudes.

3. Maintain a balanced diet: Patients need to consume enough protein, vitamins and minerals to help maintain good health. Patients are advised to eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and protein-rich foods.

4. Carry out regular rehabilitation training: Rehabilitation training can help patients maintain muscle flexibility and balance, and reduce the negative impact of the disease on the body. Patients can consult a physical therapist or rehabilitation therapist to develop a suitable rehabilitation training plan.

5. Follow the doctor's advice: Patients should follow the doctor's advice, take medications on time, and have regular check-ups. Your doctor may recommend specific dietary modifications or an exercise program to help improve your condition.
