Dementia with Lewy bodies is different from Alzheimer's disease, in which the progression of the disease usually faster. However, as Alzheimer's disease is a degenerative disease, eventually leading to complete dependence. Death usually results from other diseases such as pneumonia or an infection. The average lifespan after onset of symptoms is about seven years.

Yes, but patients who are older die in the place of natural causes. Patients with dementia with Lewy bodies on the lives of Alzheimer's patients. This usually varies from a rapid decline less frequently (death in 2 years), or generally slower decline in 8-15 years. Dementia can certainly be the death of the dementia itself.

have no idea what kind of Lewy's body. Dementia does not affect how long you live, and I think if it bad that some people forget that it is so sad.
