Dr. Marilyn Glanville, a leading nutritionist in the UK, shares the results of a study that proves insulin resistance causes the development of dementia.
“Treatment with insulin sensitizers, used in cases of type 2 diabetes, has also been shown to improve brain function as well as slow the rate of cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s disease,” Dr. Glanville explained.
“The same study shows that many diabetics have deposits of a protein (beta-amyloid) in the pancreas that is similar to that found in the brain in Alzheimer’s disease.”

Dr. Glanville said that “brain cells can become insulin resistant,” depriving them of glucose energy. Neurons need it to function normally.
It is believed to cause slow thinking, brain fog, loss of focus and concentration.
Doctors say people with type 2 diabetes have a 65% increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia.
