LBDA has developed a tool to help patients, caregivers and healthcare providers quickly and easily identify symptoms that are required for diagnosis of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), the most misdiagnosed form of dementia and one form of LBD.
The document includes a checklist for patients to identify symptoms and a second page for physicians with the criteria for diagnosing dementia with Lewy bodies. (While LBD also has many other symptoms, this abbreviated symptom checklist only focuses on those that help to diagnose LBD.)
This free patient checklist can be downloaded and printed for unlimited use by both medical practices and individuals who want to discuss LBD with their doctor.
