Episode 1 – Lewy Body 101: The Roller Coaster Ride

Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) is the second most common form of dementia, the least understood and the most difficult to diagnose because it’s episodic in nature. Unlike other forms of dementia where memory loss is gradual, the executive functioning of a person with Lewy Body ebbs and flows. In this episode, we cover the history of LBD and how it was identified, the diagnostic criteria for LBD, how LBD affects cognitive functioning and the importance of taking notes.
