  3. ABOUT DEMENTIA WITH LEWY BODIES (DLB),as a Support Therapy(in microdoses under physician prescription),researchers could study the nutraceuticals CARNOSINE and ACETYL L CARNITINE(so called ALCAR)that helps to control the common pathological features that are shared by most neurodegenerative diseases.CARNOSINE is a peroxinitrites scavenger,a heavy metal chelator,and anti-glycating agent(1),has the potential to lowers betamyloid accumulation in Alzheimer disease(2)(3), lowers alpha-synuclein accumulation in Parkinson disease and in Dementia of Lewy Bodies (2)(3)(4),enhances mitochondrial function (5) and lowers the prion-like spreads (6),(7),that happens inside the brain of AD,PD and DLB patients.Researchers of DLB,could study too the nutraceutical ACETYL L CARNITINE(ALCAR),that has antidepressant and anxiolitic effects(8),is a peroxinitrites scavenger (9),improves mitochondrial function(10,(11),increases brain energy in Parkinson disease (12)and has synergistic effects with middle-chain triglycerides,as coconut oil in mitochondrias (13) and ,lowers betamyloid and tau,accumulation,(14).

  4. You say there is no treatment, but my husband who has been diagnosed with LBD has been doing very well cognitively since he has been on the medication, rivastigmine (or Excelon) transdermal patch. Yes, it doesn't stop or reverse it, but it apparently (according to his neurologist) boosts the still healthy brain cells. His cognition is WAY improved.
