535822 tn?1443980380 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. Dr. Suzanne de la Monte from RIH is the one responsible for making this fascinating connection, having found in her research that diabetes is closely associated with several key neuronal factors implicated in dementia.
Avatar f tn Alzheimer's is also been dubbed diabetes type 3. When I read about the book Brain Grain by Dr David Perlmutter, it all clicked as to what was causing my cats dementia symptoms. Carbs! I got rid of all carbs in her diet and her dementia symptoms improved drastically although some mild behavioural issues remain. Plus she lost weight loss, her appetite improved, no more severely itchy skin or UTI infections and more energy.

Here are six on the brink of superstar status. 1. Pomegranate If you're going to have a martini, at least make it a pomegranate one.
Avatar n tn One thing that popped into my mind was the potential association between coffee and insulin resistance, as I did read that coffee was beneficial with type II Diabetes Maybe our IR Maven, CO, will chime in but hopefully not to tell us that IR is also the cause of the recent stock market crash :) " _______________________ ROFL.....it's ALL about insulin resistance, you know that....LOL Actually, for diabetics, coffee RAISES their blood sugar....
931217 tn?1283484935 One study has examined the relationship between neutering and the development of age-related behavioral changes thought to be similar to Alzheimer's disease or other forms of senile dementia in humans.[106] Such changes are relative common, being reported in 28% of dogs 10-12 years old and 68% of dogs 15-16 years old.

Avatar f tn what is the possibility of lesions being UBO's (or other explanation) due to having type 1 diabetes for 31 yrs? I've seen no other research to suggest brain lesions due to any other pathology than MS. I am not experiencing any MAJOR noticeable symptoms of MS but what I thought were more age related changes or changes in my health d/t hypothyroidism. In researching "Brain Lesions" I only see info on MS (and or cancer/Alzheimer's).
15607012 tn?1442453350 I've been to many doctors I've had many tests ran and lots of things have been uncovered, but I still do not have a clear diagnosis and I don't know where to go or who to turn to. Instead of writing a novel I'm going to keep my initial post short and I'm going to withhold information at first so I don't influence your responses. I'm going to list the symptoms I'm experiencing right now and I'd like for you to give me your first impression. I'll explain things and answer questions as we go.
Avatar f tn Hi Leeboorose. Well, perhaps I can make a bit easier for you. I have been through all this with my late mom, who passed 3 years ago. There's little doctors can do at this point, other than offer hope of slowing down the progression of her symptoms. One of the main culprits might be diminished uptake of glucose in the brain. Glucose is what fuels the brain. And there are not many substances which can go through the blood-brain barrier.
401095 tn?1351395370 My youngest is just 4 and though he is a very well behaved child he is very active and demanding of your time, like all 4 year olds. I have recently been asked to sit on Mondays for 3 hours and Tuesdays for 7 hours. My son came to pick him up and asked me how I was doing, "You look awful." I informed him I was exhausted. He said to me, "He isn't any work. Are you really that bad???" I responded, "Yes, I really am that bad." I don't know if he believed me or not.

One theory is that cinnamon increases insulin action.
Avatar m tn Perlmutter cites a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, which found that women who are given cholesterol-lowering statin medication have a 44 percent increased risk for becoming a type 2 diabetic. Diabetes, in turn, doubles your risk for Alzheimer's disease. Our ancestral diet was very high in saturated fats and virtually void of non-vegetable carbohydrates. Today, not only do we eat tremendous amounts of carbohydrates, these carbs are refined and highly processed.
Avatar m tn The authors were careful to excluding anyone who had been already diagnosed with heart disease, cancer, or type 1 or type 2 diabetes before the start of the study. This is an observational study, so it does not show causality - just association. It's consistent with research we've seen elsewhere. Fats are not bad for you - just choose the right types of fats.

2863077 tn?1436674389 Well, like I have said before my mother lived about 12 hours away in my hometown in a nursing home. She had type 2 diabetes, CHF, and Alzheimer's. Around the past Thanksgiving she had gotten a diabetic ulcer on her butt and had to have a minor surgery on it, so we though okay everything is just fine. She had to be in a healing VAC every since the surgery (don't ask me what that is lol because I have no idea but my sister knows).

Avatar n tn , associate professor of neurology in the OHSU School of Medicine, said those with diabetes have some options to treat symptoms like numbness, pain and weakness, but there is no way to promote regrowth of the damaged nerves. This means these people will have these symptoms as long as they have diabetes. "Physicians really don't have a good way of preventing diabetic neuropathy other than trying to control blood sugar," said Lou, director of the OHSU's EMG Laboratory.
Avatar m tn Why High Cholesterol Matters High cholesterol is one of the major risk factors for coronary artery disease, heart attacks, and strokes. It also appears to boost the risk of Alzheimer's disease. As we saw earlier, high cholesterol leads to a buildup of plaque that narrows the arteries. This is dangerous because it can restrict blood flow.
Avatar dr m tn Given that this type of work ethic runs deep in our modern day culture, it’s difficult to avoid being called lazy if you’re not the first one in the office and the last one to leave. However, laziness may have less to do with sleep than it does with how well one is breathing while they’re sleeping. Without assessing the latter, it would be wrong to assume the former. Sleepy or Sleep Deprived?
