Information on Lewy Bbody Dementia
on Lewy Bbody Dementia
dementia (LBD) is a progressive brain illness. In Lewy body dementia,
abnormal round structures called Lewy bodies develop in regions
of your brain involved in thinking and movement. Lewy bodies result
in the death of nerve cells. Lewy bodies also develop in people
with Parkinson\'s disease but only in one part of the brain. Lewy
body dementia is a relatively common dementia. It usually affects
people over 65 and affects more men than women. Lewy bodies appear
in deteriorating nerve cells and are frequently found in damaged
regions deep within the brains of persons with Parkinson\'s disease.
bodies exist in other areas of the brain, such as in the cortex,
a dementia syndrome arises with symptoms alike to those of Alzheimer\'s
disease. Lewy body dementia is caused by abnormal microscopic
deposits of protein in nerve cells, called lewy bodies, which
destroy the cells over time. These deposits can cause symptoms
typical of Parkinson disease, such as tremor and muscle rigidity,
as well as dementia similar to that of Alzheimer disease. Lewy
body dementia is more likely, however, to affect thinking, attention,
and concentration than memory and language.
dementia contributes to characteristics with both Alzheimer\'s
disease and Parkinson\'s disease. Alzheimer\'s disease is the
most common form of dementia. It may also cause characteristic
physical signs typical of Parkinson\'s rigid muscles, slowed progress
and tremors. Lewy body dementia can also reason hallucinations.
If a family member has the disease, there may be an increased
risk of developing the disease. Lewy body Dementia is more common
in men than in women. Symptoms of dementia with Lewy bodies including
stiffness, shuffling walk, shakiness, lack of facial expression,
and problems with balance and falls.
poor judgment, confusion and other cognitive symptoms that overlap
with Alzheimer’s disease. Visual hallucinations, such as seeing
colors, shapes, animals or people, may be one of the first symptoms
of Lewy body dementia. Cognitive symptoms and stage of alertness
may get better or worse (fluctuate) during the day or from one
day to another. Generally, treatment of Lewy body dementia is
the same as that of all dementias. Cholinesterase inhibitors are
medications used in treating Alzheimer\'s disease. They can improve
alertness and cognition in some people and may reduce hallucinations
and other distressing symptoms.
