Emerging research on the widespread degenerative brain disease known as Alzheimer's suggests that this prevalent form of dementia is actually a type of diabetes.
Published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, a recent study out of Rhode Island Hospital
(RIH) confirms that Alzheimer's is marked by brain insulin resistance
and corresponding inflammation, a condition that some researchers are
now referring to as type-3 diabetes.
Eating more healthy saturated fats like coconut oil can help prevent, cure Alzheimer's
Since many elderly individuals that have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's take statin drugs to lower their cholesterol levels, the first logical step
would be to stop taking these drugs.
Not only have statins been shown to
cause and exacerbate Alzheimer's, they have also been shown to cause
diabetes. So taking them, as many elderly dementia patients do, runs
contrary to common sense, and will only make the problem worse.
