Comorbidities such as epilepsy, pain, vascular risk factors and infections are common in patients with dementia disorders. The relationship between comorbidities and dementia is complex, and diagnosis and management can be met with barriers due to e.g. lack of insight. An individualized approach is necessary, taking the dementia disorder and other relevant circumstances into consideration. Correct and timely management of comorbidities will help to improve quality of life and slow progression of the cognitive decline.
