Dementia with Lewy Bodies
Of the forms of dementia caused by degeneration of the tissues in the brain, dementia with Lewy bodies is the second most common type after Alzheimer’s disease.
Frontotemporal dementias are among the most common dementias that strike at younger ages. Symptoms typically start between the ages of 40 and 65, but FTD can strike young adults and those who are older.
Vascular dementia is caused by damage to brain tissue, which occurs because of decreased blood flow.
