Dear Valued Subscriber,
Have a happy, healthy
week. Bonnie and Steve.
Type 3 Diabetes
Individuals with diabetes have
a much greater chance of developing
dementia, according to journal
Neurology. Even after other
risk factors for dementia were taken
into consideration, such as high
blood pressure, high cholesterol and
smoking, the trend was still
The study followed
the health progress of 1,017
individuals at least 60 years of age
for 11 years. During this period,
232 of them developed dementia. It
was found that those with diabetes
had double the risk of developing
dementia compared to those with
normal blood glucose levels. In
addition, the study found that
people with pre-diabetes had a
higher risk of developing dementia.
And even those who were not
pre-diabetic, but whose blood sugar
levels remained high two hours after
a meal, also had a higher dementia
risk. The researchers note that
their findings raise the need to
consider diabetes, now a common and
rapidly increasing disease, as a
potential risk factor for dementia.
this is why, for a while now,
integrative healthcare practitioners
have termed cognitive decline "Type
3 Diabetes". Blood sugar imbalance
is integrally linked with the
brain's cognitive abilities.
Unfortunately, as a recent Lancet
study points out, aggressively
treating a diabetic condition after
the fact does little to stem the
cognitive-lowering tide. Prevention
is the key.
In addition, there is
exciting data emerging from a
choline (B-vitamin) precursor,
Citicoline, for mood, memory,
depression, SAD, overall feeling of
well-being, impact craving, and
addiction. We have begun to
recommend this safe, natural
substance for our clients. Listen to
a Citicoline research podcast from a
renowned neurology PhD.
