Memory loss is on the rise and the health care system is unfortunately bracing for a sharp increase in dementia patients. Life expectancy has been increased for some time, but likely the largest contributing factor to this upcoming surge of dementia patients includes the rising prevalence of diabetes and prediabetes. Inappropriate glucose metabolism directly turns on an enzyme in the brain, which results in the protein misfolding seen in the Alzheimer’s disease process. Other important factors include brain activation, B vitamins, and hormones. If you want a deeper investigation into memory loss, then turn to Gates Brain Health.
