In my DelaneMD program I help women reverse their diabetes with lifestyle modifications. Diabetes is caused by insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is caused by too much insulin in our system. Too much insulin in our system is caused by the foods we eat (for the most part!). But the benefit of reversing your diabetes does not stop there. Reversing the insulin resistance has far reaching benefits to other parts of our bodies and other diseases. In this podcast I discuss the relationship with insulin resistance and dementia. I review various mechanisms that are thought to contribute to dementia. I also discuss why medications are not doing a great job at treating dementia.
