The metabolic disease is on the rise and more people are diagnosed with insulin resistance every day. Over time, insulin resistance can lead to Type 2 diabetes because the beta cells in the pancreas fail to keep up with the body's increasing need for insulin.
Did you know that Type 2 diabetes affects over 420 million people worldwide and can lead to Alzheimer's disease (AD)? In fact, people who develop Type 2 diabetes often experience a decline in cognitive function and almost 70% of them ultimately develop Alzheimer’s.
This week I had the great opportunity to review a fantastic book by Amy Berger, The Alzheimer's Antidote. It's currently one of the best-sellers in Alzheimer's Disease, Dementia, and Low Carb.
Amy's book is well-written, well-researched and not too complicated to understand, especially considering the complexity of this topic. In her new book, she challenges the genetic causes of Alzheimer's disease and focuses on its metabolic origins. You will learn everything from how brain fuel metabolism works and what leads to mitochondrial dysfunction, to how a low-carb dietary approach can be used to combat the symptoms and restore healthy cognitive function.
Whether you are fighting Alzheimer's, know someone who does, or you want to know how to prevent AD using a low-carb approach, Amy's book is a must read!
