Discovery supports theory of Alzheimer’s disease as form of diabetes.
Now scientists at Northwestern University have discovered why brain insulin signaling — crucial for memory formation — would stop working in Alzheimerâ€™s disease. They have shown that a toxic protein found in the brains of individuals with Alzheimerâ€™s removes insulin receptors from nerve cells, rendering those neurons insulin resistant. (The protein, known to attack memory-forming synapses, is called an ADDL for â€œamyloid ÃŸ-derived diffusible ligand.â€)
With other research showing that levels of brain insulin and its related receptors are lower in individuals with Alzheimerâ€™s disease, the Northwestern study sheds light on the emerging idea of Alzheimerâ€™s being a â€œtype 3â€ diabetes. . .
