Post LEWY WHO? LET'S CLEAR UP THE CONFUSION
LBD is the second most common form of dementia, afflicting 1.3 million Americans. Symptoms resemble Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, but treatment may not. Correct early diagnosis can protect patients from receiving meds and treatments that could make symptoms worse.

LBD is the most misdiagnosed form of dementia. Most people are not diagnosed until at moderate or severe states. It takes on average over 18 months and three doctor visits to receive a correct diagnosis. That’s a missed opportunity that can leave people and their families unprepared and vulnerable.
