Type 3 Diabetes?

I've been seeing more and more in health news the past 2+ years, indicating Alzheimer's is not simply a degenerative brain disease, but linked to the overall body system. I can't find the article I read over a year ago, but the gist was that they were having incredible success treating Alzheimer's with a multidisciplinary approach that included a really specific anti-inflammatory diet.

I just saw this video today, of a man who is making a documentary about the link between lifestyle and Alzheimer's, calling it type 3 diabetes:

I'm interested to see where this research goes in the medical community, as it is scary how high the numbers are in our population of Alzeheimer's sufferers.

Just a little Saturday morning web surfing going on. I'm about to cook up a nice egg breakfast and hit a local snowshoe hike with Chris and Koda :)

Enjoy your weekend <3


  1. I can't wait for the next 5-20 years. I really do hope that there can be some food, sleep, easier to implement, home based solutions.

    I remain hopeful! Enjoy your snowshoeing. I look forward to your photos. :)

  2. Alzheimer's does 'run' in my family ...... one of the reasons I live the LCHF lifestyle. Cutting out sugars and 'carbage' can only help.

    Your breakfast sounds great ...... have a good weekend.

    All the best Jan

  3. I have seen this mentioned in a couple of blogs and find it fascinating. Thanks for sharing that link and have a great weekend!

  4. I totally agree with Jan. My dad had it, and it's a major factor in why I hate grains and sugar.
