Alzheimers disease is now the new Type-3 Diabetes. This means that if type-2 diabetes runs in your family, you should get a 4-hr glucose/insulin test, along with taking drugs or nutrients that activate the insulin receptor (PPARg) for prevention, which research has shown does prevent Alzheimer’s onset. But you need to work with an in-the-know doctor/consultant/health coach as it takes strategy and planning to keep your brain safe. Metformin or herbs proven in randomized trials to work like that are top of the list considerations. And it is not just avoiding high glycemic foods, but avoiding overeating, and also identifying and avoiding food reactivity’s, which can also boost insulin. Insulin rises with stress (body/mind/spirit), not just with sugar.
And there you have it.
