DLB Overview from UK Medical Professional Reference Website

Last week, I stumbled across a medical professional reference website for UK doctors.  The overview of Dementia with Lewy Bodies is pretty good.  These topics are addressed — pathogenesis, epidemiology, typical presentation, diagnosis, differential diagnosis, investigations, management, medication, prognosis, and references.  Though the language is technical, many within Brain Support Network will have no difficulty understanding the text.

Here’s a link to the webpage on DLB:

For the diagnostic criteria, you can see the Brain Support Network website, brainsupportnetwork.org.

The best sections are management and medication.  Note in particular the list of non-pharmacological interventions.
