Dr. Pastore and Lexie review diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, why the emerging scientific evidence is showing that Alzheimer’s disease may be Type 3 diabetes, and what you can do NOW to decrease the likelihood of developing these diseases.
Some important facts:
Prolonged elevated glucose (blood sugar) levels damage blood vessels in the brain, disrupt neurotransmitters, and cause brain cell inflammation and neuronal cell death.
Type 2 diabetes increases the likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s later in life.
30% of the population carries the APO-E4 gene, those with 2 copies - increase the likelihood of those individuals developing cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
