There is unequivocal evidence that a disturbed glucose metabolism underpins all stages of metabolically induced dementia. In ALL cases of metabolically induced dementia, the brain becomes insulin resistant and cannot take up sufficient glucose to support normal activities. This results in impaired brain-function and brain-shrinkage.
Many in the scientific community are now calling this metabolically-induced dementia “Type 3 Diabetes” and I call it T3D.
Most people will tell you that there is nothing that can be done – although many sufferers are given false hope by the promise of magical pharmaceutical drugs. However, they don’t work on you – they work for the drug company’s bottom line.
What is common to every organ of the body? They all depend on a complex network of blood vessels and tiny capillaries to perform their function. If those blood vessels get damaged or clogged up then the organ stops doing what it is meant to.
I have taken the opportunity to provide a submission to the WA government “Inquiry into the role of diet in type 2 diabetes prevention and management “. The submission is based on an earlier submission to the Queensland government.
“nothing ventured, nothing gained” comes to mind, or maybe … “small-steps” …
Ok, its your body and its up to you to choose what to put in it. My non-medical advice is to really consider carefully if you want to use a pharmaceutical drug for a chronic complaint. Many of these drugs are largely ineffective and can do more harm than good.
The consciousness that is “You” is really a sophisticated linkage of brain and nerve cells all fed by a huge network of blood vessels that provides the energy to keep them alive. Seven seconds without blood and the “you” starts to die.
A personal note to let you know why I am bothering with this page and trying to spread the low-carb message. I really hope you will read it. I know it is a bit long – sorry. Thank you. Continue reading →
Continual carbohydrate consumption causes the body to produce higher and higher levels of Insulin over time. Eventually you will likely become diabetic (Type 2, T2D). T2D is simply a label that doctors use to describe the state you get to when your body’s metabolism of sugars is really screwed up. Diabetes Australia: “Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition in which the body becomes resistant to the normal effects of insulin and/or gradually loses the capacity to produce enough insulin in the pancreas.” Continue reading →
