In another NIH study, ketones in the blood (as in a ketogenic diet) had much more dramatic effects and in a shorter time frame. It is becoming more and more clear that Alzheimer's has something to do with impaired glucose metabolism by certain nerve cells in the brain. The good news is that these cells are among the 95% in your body which can do without glucose/insulin entirely and fuel on ketones instead as long as the body is in ketosis.
I have a grandparent and a parent who died from Alzheimer's - just another reason I intend to stay ketogenic for life!
