How Does Someone Get FTD?
FTD is not like a cold. You cannot “catch” FTD. You catch a cold or get the flu from germs that are passed from one person to another. FTD is not caused by germs.
FTD is caused by changes in the cells inside the brain. Doctors and scientists do not know exactly what causes the changes but they are learning more about it all the time. One day scientists will find the answer.
Scientists are sure that:
- FTD is not passed from one person to another. It is not .
- FTD is not caused by anything the person did wrong.
- FTD is not caused by anything you or any other person did.
A disease that is spread from one person to another through germs or touching someone who has it.
