On 12 April 2017 Reuters reported:
Having reduced sensitivity to insulin may lead to more rapid decline in memory and other mental skills in old age even among people who don't have diabetes, a recent study suggests. So-called insulin resistance, the body's failure to respond normally to the hormone insulin, is a hallmark of diabetes. Diabetes itself -- a disease in which the body can't properly use insulin to convert blood sugar into energy -- has been linked to cognitive decline and dementia, but the exact nature of the connection isn't as clear.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern health systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
... 'There is growing evidence that insulin carries out multiple functions in the brain and thus poor regulation of insulin may contribute to accelerated cognitive decline and potentially to Alzheimer's disease,' said senior study author David Tanne of Tel Aviv University in Israel.
'It is not just people with Type 2 diabetes,' Tanne said by email. 'Even people with mild or moderate insulin resistance who don't have Type 2 diabetes are at increased risk over time.'
. . . 'However, there are some studies indicating that exercise and healthy diet may prevent insulin resistance in the brain,' [said Fernanda De Felice, a neurobiology researcher at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil who wasn't involved in the study] 'Having proper sleep and avoiding stress also helps.'
