BEN BIKMAN g’ BYU LAB: ALZHEIMER’S From insulin resistance:BRAIN has FUEL GAP
presents episode 1029 | Dr Ben Bikman
Dr Steven Lin podcast
BYU Lab published paper earlier this year…
-hippocampus involved in cognition
-it relies on 2 fuels: glucose & ketones
-research on human hippocampus cells
-Alzheimer’s cells had reduction in
THEY WERE ALL DOWN
-ketone genes were totally normal
in both Alzheimer’s and normal
Other research: early dementia brains
take in less glucose, BUT STILL USES KETONES
We are looking at degree hippocampus
becomes insulin resistant…
-hippocampus NEEDS GLUCOSE by
-When insulin resistant, CANNOT GET
THAT GLUCOSE FOR FUEL
“Brain is energy HOG. But, when
insulin resistant, cannot access the
glucose it is dependent on.
BRAIN HAS ENERGY GAP”
-while body swimming in glucose, insulin not working!”
AND: eating carbs so much, NEVER
HAVE KETONES–which could replace
“Alzheimer’s to some degree is due to
insulin resistant hippocampus”
-IMPROVING INSULIN RESISTANCE
can make up the energy gap.
