Dr Oz: Alzheimer’s Disease & Diabetes
Doctor Oz did a show on an Alzheimer’s Breakthrough – a new link between Alzheimer’s and Diabetes. Dr Oz said that this might be the most revolutionary show he has ever done. You can imagine your brain as being made up of cables, which are your brains nerves. And there are lights that shine throughout your brain, which are your memories, emotions and thoughts. With Alzheimer’s Disease, the signals are cut to the nerves in your brain and all of a sudden your brain can go dark. But what turns off the light? Could Diabetes be the cause of Alzheimer’s Disease? Dr Oz also gave a great list of Foods That Cause Alzheimer’s.
Dr Oz: Alzheimer’s & Insulin Resistance
Dr Oz said that Alzheimer’s Disease robs more than 5 million Americans of their past, present and future. And as families watch their loved ones slip away, they become worried that they are destined to suffer from the same thing. New research offers hope though. Dementia is the result of tangles and plaque in the brain, but until recently we did not know what caused the tangles or plaque. Dr Suzanne de la Monte, from Long Island, may have discovered what is causing plaque and tangles in our brain, and so she is now calling Alzheimer’s Disease a form of “Diabetes In The Brain.” The next logical conclusion is that if Alzheimer’s is a kind of Diabetes, is something in our diet causing it? There is a chemical preservative found in many processed foods called Nitrosamines which may be accountable for Neuro-Degeneration similar to Alzheimers.
Dr Oz: Brain Diabetes
Doctor Oz said that having Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes increases your risk of getting Alzheimer’s Disease, but even if you do not have Diabetes in your body, you could have it in your brain. He asked Dr Suzanne de la Monte what is the difference between Diabetes in the brain and Diabetes in the body? She said that Diabetes can take place anywhere in the body. We normally think of Diabetes as high sugar in the blood, but the important thing is that it means there is high insulin which can occur anywhere in the body. There is a big overlap of around 40% between between people who have Diabetes in both their brain and in their body, but Alzheimer’s can also exist on its own without having signs of Diabetes elsewhere in your body.
