When Adam Wainwright's mother was struck with LBD in 2000, he discovered an alarming lack of material for understanding, treating, and living with the disease. After his mother passed, he worked with Erik Stevenson, MD to create a book aimed not just at caregiving but only helping patients understand the disease and the disease process. In "Lewy Body Dementia: Causes, Tests and Treatment Options," the authors provide the reader with an abundance of information that is easy to understand and can be applied to the lives of those that are affected by this disease whether they are friends or family. The book guides you through the battery of diagnostics that should be performed to eliminate other disease processes. These include laboratory work, mental assessment, neurological exams, and an electroencephalogram. You'll also discover which medications work -- and which should be avoided at all costs. The caregiver's guide prepares loved ones for the journey of caring for a LBD patient. Finally, a comprehensive resources section has dozens of LBD resources, from national organizations to online support groups. If you or a loved one are suffering from LBD, this informative book gives you all the information you need to know about the causes, tests and treatment options for this devastating disease. Also includes a comprehensive LBD glossary and caregiver tips.
