Dementia symptoms: If your partner makes this disturbing comment it could be a sign – Express

According to the Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA), factors that reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD) (smoking, a history of cancer and more years of education), also reduced the risk of DLB.

“Like PD, prior caffeine use was also associated with a reduced likelihood of an eventual DLB diagnosis,” explains the LDBA.

Anxiety and depression may be early indicators of disease onset, or they may also be a natural response to mild cognitive decline, according to the health body.

“Yet, in people who do not have symptoms during life, but are found to have Lewy body pathology in their brains at autopsy, anxiety and depression are uncommon,” it adds.
