So is it suicide if a brain disease may have caused you to kill yourself?

I just watched a report on Robin Williams suicide and they say he was suffering from an undiagnosed disease that causes hallucinations, and paranoia. They thought he had Parkison which has almost the same beginning symptoms but it turns out he had a severe case of Lewy Body Dementia.

So it made me wonder. Would it still be consider suicide if the person doing the act couldn’t tell the difference between reality or a hallucination?
