This is a very interesting idea Lynn. There is a known relationship between cholesterol and Type 2 Diabetes. A while back I heard that Alzheimer's Disease has another name: Type 3 Diabetes. The Diabetes Australia website says that, 'Type 3 Diabetes is a title that has been proposed for Alzheimer’s disease which results from resistance to insulin in the brain. It is not yet a medical term or a recognised condition, but is a term now used in research looking into the causes of Alzheimer’s disease.'
Thanks Trevor.Statins are very popular now to reduce cholesterol. Seems there are good reasons for taking them.
