Exploring the Role of Diabetes and Insulin Resistance in the Development of Alzheimer's Disease
21 September 2021
Time: 6:30pm to 7:30pm
A growing body of research is finding links between Alzheimer’s disease, insulin resistance and diabetes. This has led to Alzheimer’s disease being labelled “type 3 diabetes”.
The hippocampus, brain lipids, blood-brain barrier, stress, the Western diet, amyloid beta proteins and mitochondria all play their role in Alzheimer’s disease. The interplay between these factors, insulin resistance and diabetes can offer some fascinating insights into the development of this complex neurodegenerative disease.
This webinar will explore this interplay, delve into the latest research and present dietary strategies that may be effective in reducing Alzheimer’s risk or managing symptoms.
