Author:  Hriday Bhambhvani

Though not quite a household name, Lewy Body disease (LBD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disease behind Alzheimer’s. LBD affects roughly 1.4 individuals and their families in the United States. Patients experience loss of mobility, cognitive decline, and visual hallucinations. Because LBD symptoms can resemble other forms of dementia, it is currently widely underdiagnosed.
