Does this mean that her brain was failing to control her temperature via the usual mechanisms?My wife with LBD lost complete control of body temperature.
It was explained to me as a result of disturbances in autonomic processes.
My Dad (diagnosed with just Alzheimer's, but we suspect now has mixed dementias) often seems to have no sense of temperature - either his own, or the external temperature. When I visited him on the hottest day of the year this year, he had 4 tops on, plus a winter puffer jacket...nitram could you give a bit more detail please?
My Mum's freezing cold to the touch sometimes on her arms and legs but isn't giving any signs that she's cold. We think she can't communicate .. so that may explain the lack of complaint. When she could communicate though she hated being cold (and it took a (minimum!) temperature of 80 degrees F for her to feel warm!).
