Could Alzheimer's Disease be Type 3 Diabetes???

If you have read my blogs for the last few years you know that insulin management is the number 1 determiner of longevity, world wide. Elevated insulin levels eventually cause insulin resistance and is responsible for a host of diseases. This is the second study I will have reported on that suggests, Alzheimer's disease may also be caused by too high of insulin levels and may be eventually added to the issues below that I have reported on, over the years. This is an important study as it may indicate that Metabolic Syndrome or Hyperinsulinemia could be the underlining cause of Alzheimer's. The cluster of diseases that are implicated by Metabolic Syndrome are many and include these issues: Obesity, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, High Triglycerides, Fluid Retention, Heart Disease, Arteriosclerosis (calcium deposits), Atherosclerosis (fat deposits), Acid Reflux, Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease, Increased Inflammation, Pre-Mature Aging, etc.
Now perhaps, we are seeing evidence of a Type 3 Diabetes - Alzheimer's disease. This can be an exciting discovery because we know how to reverse Metabolic Syndrome. Check this study out and stay tuned to this Blog for more evidence as it comes my way.


Theory That Alzheimer's Disease Is A Third Form Of Diabetes Supported By Discovery...
Insulin, it turns out, may be as important for the mind as it is for the body. Research in the last few years has raised the possibility that Alzheimer's memory loss could be due to a novel third form of diabetes. Now scientists at Northwestern University have discovered why brain insulin signaling -- crucial for memory formation -- would stop working in Alzheimer's disease. They have shown that a toxic protein found in the brains of individuals with Alzheimer's removes insulin receptors from nerve cells, rendering those neurons insulin resistant. (The protein, known to attack memory-forming synapses, is called an ADDL for "amyloid ß-derived diffusible ligand.") With other research showing that levels of brain insulin and its related receptors are lower in individuals with Alzheimer's disease, the Northwestern study sheds light on the emerging idea of Alzheimer's being a "type 3" diabetes.




This is a comprehensive multi-vitamin designed especially for those who require additional support in controlling blood sugar levels. The formula includes additional nutrients and minerals known to be protective in such situations.

This formula is designed to assist with regulation of blood sugar levels by improving insulin action and cell sensitivity. It would be used with a multi-vitamin supplement ideally.
