A new study conducted at the National Institute of Aging (NIA) of NIH by Madhav Thambisetty, MD., PhD shows the toxic effect of sugar for brain cells. In this study the scientists observed that high glucose levels in various brain regions susceptible for Alzheimer pathology increase the likelihood and severity of Alzheimer’s Disease. High glucose levels and higher vulnerability to Alzheimer’s Disease pathology create a new link between diabetes and this neurodegenerative disease. Although the mechanisms are not completely understood, the results from this study further emphasizes the necessity to avoid sugar.

The study was published by NIH:

Higher brain glucose levels may mean more severe Alzheimer’s.

NIH study shows connections between glucose metabolism, Alzheimer’s pathology, symptoms.
