The Challenges of FTD versus Alzheimer's

View as


In frontotemporal dementia (FTD), the average time from diagnosis to the end is 3.5 to 6 years, although there are many individual factors that can impact disease duration. For example, people who develop ALS progress more quickly.

Patients with Alzheimer's disease are usually affected later in life and tend to live longer with a slower progression of symptoms than those with FTD.
