Lewy Body Dementia in the News

Unless you have had first hand experience with a loved one’s diagnosis, many people have not heard of Lewy Body Dementia – even though it is the second most common dementia after Alzheimer’s Disease. It has been covered in the news since the late Robin Williams’ wife recently shared that this was his primary diagnosis prior to his passing. As sad as this news is, it has helped to increase awareness and raise questions about what LBD is and how it is being addressed in health care.

Two of Noran Clinic’s neurologists were interviewed in the past few days about Lewy Body Dementia, and explain what this disease is and what we know about it right now.

You can listen to Dr. Okeanis Vaou’s interview with WCCO Radio-AM Radio from Thursday, November 5th, here:

 

You can watch Dr. Tacjana Friday’s interview with the Fox 9 Morning Show from Sunday, November 8th, here:

 

If you are concerned about the symptoms of a loved one and are seeking an evaluation with a neurologist, you can reach Noran Neurological Clinic at 612-879-1500. Although we do not have any doctors who specialize in Lewy Body Dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease specifically, all of our neurologists are familiar with these conditions and are able to evaluate and treat them.
