Irreversible Dementias

While treatable dementias may include toxic, metabolic, depressive, or medication-induced, there are some dementias that are not treatable.

The dementia that most are familiar with is Alzheimer's disease (AD). Other types of dementia include Parksinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, vascular dementia, infection or injury-related dementias.

AD is the most common form of dementia followed by vascular dementia which is caused by decreased blood flow in the brain in such diagnoses as stroke.
