LBD Word for 10-8: Individual

LBD is very specific to each individual, and thus hard to diagnose, especially by non-LBD savvy doctors--and there are many of those!
  • No two people will experience this disorder the same way.
  • No two people will have the same symptoms.
  • When two people have a similar symptom, they will likely express it differently, or with more or less intensity.
However, there are enough similarities that knowledgeable (Lewy-savvy) doctors can diagnose it and differentiate it from other dementias.

For more information about Lewy body disorders, read our books:
