  1. My mom was not properly diagnosed and because she was 85,no autopsy was performed. She had some many of the LBD symptoms, but the most telling one was that she knew something was wrong. This terrible disease took her August 10, 2016. PLEASE don't just settle for a diagnosis of Alzheimer's.

  2. I agree. My husband's third or fourth neurologist stopped at Alzheimer's but it didn't still right with Mr after reading the book, "Still Alive.". This was different. So, moving to the next one who did a DAT scan for dopamine levels could distinguish between Alz and Lewy Body. Different progression, symptoms, treatment, etc. Not that there is a cure but the shame if we had accepted one diagnosis. His quality of life, and mine, alone, never mind life span, etc. could all have been negatively affected. Be your own best advocate!
