CBD - Corticobasal Degeneration

My mom has been diagnosed with CBD. I would like to know if it is hereditary? And if it is how can I prevent myself from getting it or slowing it down?

I can find no indication that there is a genetic marker for CBD. CBD is a difficult diagnois, usually presenting in people over 60. The cause is unknown and the disease usually occurs as a result of injury to neural cells.
