Type 3 Diabetes and Alzheimers Disease
Diabetes 3 Linked to Alzheimer's
The brain requires insulin to be secreted in order to ensure that the brain's cells survive. Diabetes 3 means that the brain is no longer secreting enough insulin and therefore, the brain's cells will deteriorate.
As the brain cells stop working, the brain's receptors also decline in function.
Some individuals believe that Alzheimer's is actually diabetes type 3. Yet, evidence suggests that Alzheimer's sufferers have a particular protein within the brain that actually removes insulin receptors from the brain's cells making the cells stop accepting the necessary insulin to enable the cells survival and also preventing the brain's memory from working properly.
