Diabetes and Alzheimer's

0  comments

Evidence continues to mount indicating a link between the hyperinsulinemia of those with diabetes and obesity and the development of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
The advanced online paper in Archives of Neurology showing the hyerinsulinemia/AD connection concludes on a sinister note:

Although this model has obvious relevance for diabetes mellitus, hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance are widespread conditions that affect many nondiabetic adults with obesity, impaired glucose tolerance, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension. Our results provide a cautionary note for the current epidemic of such conditions, which, in the context of an aging population, may provoke a dramatic increase in the prevalence of AD.

Just another reason to follow your low-carb diet faithfully and keep your insulin levels down where they belong.
