I recently read an article that I found very interesting that talked about the onset of dementia and its correlation with blood sugar. According to Dr. Steven Masley, elevated blood sugar levels are now considered the biggest reversible risk for memory loss. He calls dementia “Type III Diabetes”, or “Diabetes Brain”.
His article details the huge impact that elevated blood sugar levels have on brain tissue, not to mention weight gain and all that that brings. Elevated blood sugar levels are the #1 cause of cardiovascular disease, and a strong risk factor for memory loss.
All of this is reversible with some basic lifestyle changes that include:
- Eat more fiber
- Engage in activity every day
- Get in the right amount of vitamins/minerals/essential fatty acids
- Manage your stress
