Lewy Body Dementia
Conrad Christensen is a licensed psychologist whose wife, Sharon, suffered from Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) and died in 2013. Conrad made it his mission to learn all he could about the disease and alert others to its symptoms and treatment. LBD is a progressive brain disease and the second leading cause of degenerative dementia in the elderly. Despite that, it has been a relatively unknown disease, although the revelation that Robin Williams had the disease has given it a higher profile. Nevertheless, it is commonly misdiagnosed or undiagnosed because its symptoms are hidden among common symptoms shared with more familiar diseases, like Alzheimerís and/or Parkinsonís. At this time a conclusive diagnosis of LBD can be obtained only from a postmortem autopsy. Some symptoms include fluctuating cognition with clear variations in attention, alertness, and wakefulness; recurrent visual hallucinations that are typically well formed and detailed; and Parkinsonism, which usually occurs at the same time or after the onset of dementia in LBD patients.

Treatments for LBD include a variety of drugs, including Attention Deficit medications. Patients may also be helped with physical therapy, massage, exercise, redirection techniques, music, and aromatherapy. Unfortunately, up to 50% of LBD patients treated with traditional antipsychotic medications may experience a worsening of their condition. In his experience, Mr. Christensen has found that many doctors are poorly informed about LBD. His recommendation is to learn all you can about it on your own. He particularly recommends ďA Caregiverís Guide to Lewy Body DementiaĒ by James Whitworth & Helen Buell Whitworth.
