The only classification of types of dementia starting with an F that I am aware of is the ICD (International Clasification of Diseases) https://icd.who.int/browse10/2016/en#/F00my mother has just been given the news that she has type f 100
Thank you @northumbrian_k, that is the list I have seen, I think it was when my mum was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and the list was with the bumph included with the advisory for her. You have saved me a lot of time digging through paperwork!This looks like the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) in which Chapter V is Mental and Behavioural Disorders. Within that chapter are codes for Dementia as follows:
(F00) Dementia in Alzheimer's disease
(F01) Vascular dementia
(F01.1) Multi-infarct dementia
(F02) Dementia in other diseases classified elsewhere
(F02.0) Dementia in Pick's disease
(F02.1) Dementia in Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease
(F02.2) Dementia in Huntington's disease
(F02.3) Dementia in Parkinson's disease
(F02.4) Dementia in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease
(F03) Unspecified dementia
I suspect that the f 100 in the original post is a typographical error.
About 15 years ago I was a data analyst and had to know about ICD coding so it was relatively straightforward for me. It doesn't help the original poster to understand what might be in store.
