#Dementia with #Lewybodies symptoms: Could you have this dementia without realising? https://buff.ly/2JwjPLu

Just over a year ago my dad was diagnosed with cancer and Lewy Bodies Dementia... it's been quite the journey. Today he is cancer free and we have been learning how to live the best way possible with the other challenges. Can't say its always easy, but today I am thankful for where we are and each day we have together. This photo was Easter last year at the rehab facility. Tomorrow we celebrate Easter at home. ❤ #dad #family #love #strength #cancer #chemo #lewybodies #dementia #easter #thankful #blessed #adventureswithdad

Proactive treatment of depression with SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) was associated with increased hippocampal neurogenesis and preservation of cognition in Lewy bodies (DLB) or Parkinson disease dementia (PDD) patients. 📷@kyrenian #treatment #antidepressant #SSRI #neurogenesis #cognition #DLB #PDD #parkinsons #PD #lewybodies #wishes #memories #stars #shower #hotairballoon #sunset #cappadocia #purplesky #purple #makeawish #magic #intothenight #balloons #magicspot #serendipity #travel #getaway #moonlight #underthestars #lightsinthenight

This is his new kind of smile!! I miss him so much!

Dementia with Lewy Bodies Has Its Own Genetic Signature

About 15 years ago I became acquainted with Lewy Body Disease the hard way when my father was diagnosed. In the meantime, I learned that nobody really knew that much about the disease or how to effectively treat it. Unlike other diseases that had been pulled apart hundreds of ways to find the best ways to treat them, this second leading cause of dementia has remained a scientific ghost. That is, perhaps until now, as researchers are zeroing in on it’s genetics.

My Introduction to Lewy Body Dementia

My father began to exhibit the first signs of what everyone thought was Parkinson’s disease about 20 years ago. The problem was that while the slow and limited movements of Parkinson’s can be easily treated with medications, my dad wasn’t responding in the same way. His local physicians didn’t know why, so I had a local expert Neuropsychologist see him and to her it was clear, he had Lewy Body Dementia.

Like to many people, this diagnosis didn’t resonate. While I had learned a little about this issue in medical school, the more I researched the disease the more questions I unearthed. Turned out nobody really knew much about it, why it happened, or how to treat it. All they knew was that these patients had the worse parts of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, with some hallucinations thrown in for good measure. They also knew that on post-mortem exams they had these small inclusions in the brain called lewy bodies. Read More: https://www.regenexx.com/is-lewy-body-dementia-genetic/

"Es duro el trabajo de la pesadilla
es duro
arrastrar de día el carro de las marionetas,
de noche; y ser una de ellas
mañana, cuando abran los ojos
para no ver
que la bailarina de cuerda danzando entre ellas
mueve ella misma el resorte" Leopoldo María Panero

“Quizás el océano había logrado trastocar mi cerebro, me había sumergido en un mar de alucinaciones y, si era así, resultaba inútil malgastar las fuerzas en vanos intentos por resolver tantas adivinanzas, por desvelar el misterio de tantas realidades inexistentes.” Stanislaw Lem

I can't wake him up this morning! Maybe he is dreaming about something wonderful! I miss my Dad everyday! #alzheimerssucks #daddy #alz #love #endalz #donate #dementia #imissyou #loveyou #lewybodies #1928

Two years ago we began to notice mom misplacing things and having difficulty accomplishing routine tasks. My sister took her to a local neurologist, and he asked her to perform a simple task that would forever change all of our lives. The doctor asked mom to draw the circular face of a clock, and place the numbers around the clock where they belonged. This may sound like an easy task, but to a person in the early stages of Alzheimer's or Dementia, this request is nearly impossible to complete.

Therefore, if you have a loved one who seems to be forgetting more than usual, confusing names, getting disoriented while driving or walking, and/or having increased difficulty performing routine chores around the house; please ask them to perform the "clock test," and consult a health professional if the results aren't as positive as expected.

Gemma specialises in medical imaging using #radioactive tracers, which produce signals that can be detected by special scanners.

She says ‘my project is about improving certain types of #medical scan used to diagnose #dementia with Lewy bodies. These scans give information on whether specific nerve cells (#neurons) have been damaged by the #Lewybodies, which are abnormal protein clumps that build up in the #brain and other parts of the nervous system. Accurate #diagnosis at an earlier stage is also good news for people currently living with dementia as there is more time to get treatment and make plans for the future.’ #AdaLovelaceDay #Research #STEM 🔬🌡💉💊🔭

Lewy Bodies SUCKS! Its rapidly taking my father away from me. Izzy will never grow up knowing her Poppa the way i do. The man who never let anything stop him. He had no limits on what he could and couldn't do. The parkinson side causes his movement to be limited on how he plays with her. And the dementia causes him to not only forget daily tasks for him but makes him sleep for endless hours. Nobody should ever have to feel this way.. #dementiasucks #lewybodies
