Long Term Cognition via controlling Blood Sugar

Here are the dangers of high blood sugar: Higher blood sugar means higher risk of dementia. Blood sugar above 105 to 110 is a cognitive hazard. High fasting glucose increases brain glucose and causes hippocampal atrophy. High blood sugar→vascular dementia and other dementia High fasting glucose causes whole brain atrophy. Keep blood sugar low to… Continue reading Long Term Cognition via controlling Blood Sugar

Long Term Cognition via controlling Blood Pressure

Keep blood sugar low to avoid brain atrophy. Normal blood pressure prevents brain shrinkage. Hypertension can cause memory complaints even in young people. Raised blood pressure at any age speeds cognitive decline. Take heed of low diastolic pressure and blood pressure meds. Two new studies support lowering systolic blood pressure to an intensive goal of… Continue reading Long Term Cognition via controlling Blood Pressure

Long Term Cognition via a Strong Circadian Oscillation

 A weak or misaligned circadian rhythm, can, over time, be causative of cognitive decline. Circadian dysfunction precedes Alzheimer’s symptoms. Demonstrated in mice. There is a daily oscillation in Aβ42 clearance and that this oscillation was lost in cells without a circadian rhythm. Dissociation between the output of the circadian clock and external environmental cues is… Continue reading Long Term Cognition via a Strong Circadian Oscillation
