Link Between Diabetes and Alzheimer's Disease

Monday, July 17, 2006

Okay, one more thing to add to the list of "complications" that may be caused by diabetes - Alzheimer's Disease.  Well, from what I have read, this is not an entirely new finding.  However, new studies are showing that there is a correlation between the two. [See "Another Complication from Diabetes: Alzheimer's Disease at Time.com.] The article does make not that this is bad news and good news.  The good news is that it brings scientists a little bit closer to understanding the two diseases.  I sure hope so.

I went  out to lunch yesterday with my family and mother-in-law.  We went to a local diner.  I ordered a Greek Salad with grilled chicken.  The bowl was covered with tons of chicken, but not a lot of salad.  A few weeks ago, I would have said "oh yeah," but instead I was kind of upset, because I could only have about a third of the chicken, but would have been able to have more of the salad than I was given.  I actually used another third of the chicken with dinner and the final third for lunch today.  In the good ol' days, like last June, I would have devoured that entire bow, and would have been happy that there was not a lot of greens.

I have another nutritionist appointment for tomorrow evening.  It will be interesting what she has to say about what I have been eating and my blood sugar results.  I will also look forward to not having to lance myself four times each day - although I will still probably continue it once or twice a day.  I was thinking about once in the morning when I awaken as a fast glucose check and then two hours after dinner.  This way I do not have to continue to bring the glucose monitor to work with me.

As an FYI, Google has cached the site as of Sunday evening, but it is still not in the index - but it should be any day now.
