    Increasing Metabolism May Reverse Alzheimer Disease (AD) And General Aging

    Yet another study demonstrating the remarkable parallels between the decline in function (metabolism) and the structural abnormalities that occur not only in specific pathologies such as AD but also in the generalized degradation known as "aging". FDA currently does not recognize aging as a...

    Allopregnanolone As A Treatment Of Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    It looks like the recent FDA approval of allopregnanolone (ALLO) for postpartum depression may open the floodgates to ton of new research with this steroid, as well as with its reliable precursors such as pregnenolone and progesterone. I posted several studies in the past demonstrating that...

    Increased Cholesterol Esterification As A Cause Of Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    Peat's most recent newsletter was on the topic of cholesterol and its increased esterification as a possible cause of the many pathologies that occur with aging. Nov 2018: Dr. Peat Talks About Cholesterol Esters Causing Aging One of the organs most vulnerable to cholesterol esterification is...

    Alzheimer Disease (AD) May Be Simply Diabetes Of The Brain

    I touched upon this topic in one of the Danny Roddy shows we did last year but the evidence since then has continues to accumulate that AD is entirely a metabolic disorders, basically identical to diabetes but focusing on the brain. A recent study found that delirium, an acute form of...

    Death Rate From Alzheimer Disease (AD) Has Risen By 55% In Just 5 Years

    I am surprised this dire statistic even made it to front page news, but hopefully it would give the public some food for thought. The even scarier news buried inside this tragic article is that most of the deaths are due to the so-called "early onset" AD, which strikes people in their 50s, 60s...

    Delirium (and Dementia/AD) Is Caused By Inability To Oxidize Glucose

    Ray has written about the metabolic origins of Alzheimer disease (AD) and I posted quite a few studies on the links between AD and PUFA metabolites as well as insulin resistance in the brain. I even mentioned on one of Danny Roddy's shows that there is a proposal by NIH to reclassify AD as...
