Default Scientists find new Alzheimer's gene link

SCIENTISTS have found three new major genetic links to Alzheimer's, affecting up to 20 percent of people with the brain-wasting disease, and said it was the most significant such discovery in 15 years.

Another one...

"As expected, APOE ε4 was associated with higher rates of amyloid plaque buildup. However, they also identified a novel association between a single nucleotide polymorphism in IL1RAP (rs12053868-G) and higher rates of amyloid accumulation, independent of APOE ε4."

This SNP is tested on 23andme.

Type 2 diabetes simply describes the effects of insulin resistance and elevated circulatory glucose. It's easy to identify the bodily effects, such as autoimmune diseases and cardiovascular diseases, because they work on water-based chemical reactions .....hydrophilic reactions. Nerves and the brain work in a framework of fat-based chemical reactions ......hydrophobic reactions.

Now that medical science has begun to understand some of the brain's chemistry scientists are discovering that alzheimer's, dementia, seizures and many other brain conditions are merely effects of insulin resistance. Just like bodily insulin-resistance conditions, whether or not a person gets one of these conditions, and which condition he/she gets, depends on genetics.
