Default Podcast on the Diabetes Continuum

http://powerhealthtalk.com/alzheimer...he-problem.htm

Here is a link to a podcast episode where the subject matter revolves around Alzheimer's disease, but also extensively talks diabetes being on a continuum. Note that 30 minutes into the podcast they talk about Neurologists treating pre-diabetic SFN patients with diabetes medications and are looked down upon by their colleagues because they are not following the standard of care. Hopefully this is helpful to some members on this forum .

A lot of people call Alzheimer's Disease "Diabetes Type 3."

There was just an article in the Wall Street Journal this week that nicely summarized ongoing research.

Diabetes May Be a Risk Factor for Developing Alzheimer’s, Studies Find

I WONT go that far as to call it diabetes #3, its a misleading title. I read somewhere that when people have type 2 diabetes, they form some kind of plaque in thier pancreas, like the amyoloid plauqes in alzheimers, maybe thats where they are trying to draw the connection

The label type 3 diabetes has been in the medical literature for several years now - at least since 2005.

That link is a wormhole to information, some above my head, but all interesting.

My Mood: Podcast on the Diabetes Continuum
Angry

Ok, I read the article. I have Type 2 Diabetes - only 2 years. I have MANY white matter lesions in my brain (too soon to be caused by Diabetes), I'm 53. My dear Mum was devastated by Alzheimer's, her memory after aged 6 wiped away.

While there MAY be links between uncontrolled blood sugar and ameloid formation, anyone who thinks that Diabetes and Alzheimer's are of the same Family have never had a Loved One stricken with any type of Dementia - had their life and self stripped away from them, had the family shattered by this cruellest of conditions.

Dave.

Dementia is a terrible disease indeed. I think way too many of us have a loved one in our life that has been touched by this disease or something close to it. My father has Huntington's disease which is like rolling ALS, Alzheimers, and Schizophrenia into one condition. We need to find solutions to these medical problems.

My mother died of Alzheimer's. And, yes, I do believe there could be a similar root cause/contributing factor of both Alzheimer's and Diabetes Type II.
