Description

What is Lewy Body Dementia?

Lewy body dementias (LBD) are a collection of related brain disorders that affect 1.3 million people in the United States. The common ties between these disorders are the presence of "Lewy bodies" (abnormal protein deposits) in the brain and varying combinations of certain cognitive, motor and psychiatric symptoms.

Join with us today!
