Dear Valued Subscriber,
Have a happy, healthy week. Bonnie and Steve.
Type 3 Diabetes

Individuals with diabetes have a much greater chance of developing dementia, according to journal Neurology. Even after other risk factors for dementia were taken into consideration, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and smoking, the trend was still material.

The study followed the health progress of 1,017 individuals at least 60 years of age for 11 years. During this period, 232 of them developed dementia. It was found that those with diabetes had double the risk of developing dementia compared to those with normal blood glucose levels. In addition, the study found that people with pre-diabetes had a higher risk of developing dementia. And even those who were not pre-diabetic, but whose blood sugar levels remained high two hours after a meal, also had a higher dementia risk. The researchers note that their findings raise the need to consider diabetes, now a common and rapidly increasing disease, as a potential risk factor for dementia.

Steve - this is why, for a while now, integrative healthcare practitioners have termed cognitive decline "Type 3 Diabetes". Blood sugar imbalance is integrally linked with the brain's cognitive abilities. Unfortunately, as a recent Lancet study points out, aggressively treating a diabetic condition after the fact does little to stem the cognitive-lowering tide. Prevention is the key.


In addition, there is exciting data emerging from a choline (B-vitamin) precursor, Citicoline, for mood, memory, depression, SAD, overall feeling of well-being, impact craving, and addiction. We have begun to recommend this safe, natural substance for our clients. Listen to a Citicoline research podcast from a renowned neurology PhD.žion=8&article=209


2011 Bonnie Minsky Award Winner

The Bonnie C. Minsky Award provides tuition support to students whose research and educational interest focus on nutrition, maternal and child health, women's health or healthy aging at UIC School of Public Health, where Bonnie received her master's.


This year's winner, Yuka Asada, is registered dietitian and PhD candidate in the Maternal and Child Health program within the Community Health Sciences Division. As an international student, Yuka is unable to apply for financial aid, so this award allows her to spend more time on her independent studies.
