The Link Between Alzheimer's and Diabetes

Posted on September 21 2011

 It has long been suspected that there is a defined link  between diabetes and the onset of Alzheimer's. After 11 years  of study, Japanese researchers have confirmed that there is  indeed a link between insulin and the build up of material in  the brain responsible for dementia. Health officials are urging  those with diabetes to carefully monitor and treat fluctuations  in insulin levels to reduce the potential risk.
Over 25 million Americans afflicted with diabetes, according to recent studies, represent a significant risk for the onset of Alzheimer's. Without proper guidance and testing, these individuals can develop increased buildup of harmful materials facilitating dementia. Known treatments include healthier lifestyle and diet choices as well as insulin therapy. Nearly half of those with diabetes can or will not seek the required medical treatment to properly monitor their health. Medical professionals have been urging patients for years to modify lifestyle and diet choices to reduce the risks associated with diabetes. It is expected that, with this link established, more diabetics will seek treatment and take an active role in their health. According to research, Alzheimer's is one of the most feared diseases threatening a fast growing elder population.
