Emerging research seems to indicate a connection between insulin resistance in the brain and the development of Alzheimer's disease--a condition researchers are calling type-3 diabetes. Suzanne de la Monte, MD, MPH is the leading expert in this developing field. In this interview, Dr. de la Monte will discuss her research detailing the links between brain insulin resistance and deficiency in amyloid-related neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease. The conversation will also review the clinical and experimental data linking chronic hyperinsulinaemia to cognitive impairment and neurodegeneration. Dr. de la Monte will share opportunities to discover and implement new treatments and devise preventive measures.
