#DiabetesDrug Prevents #MemoryLoss Oh My!

DiabetesDrug2Does anybody else see the serendipity of this news? I say that with tongue-in-cheek but diabetes has the dubious distinction of speeding the aging process. As we age, our memory gets weaker, naturally. So it makes complete sense that diabetes combined with memory loss treatments make more sense than we realized. This diabetes drug not only manages blood sugar but it also reverses memory loss. Is this gift too good to be true? As neurologists confirm, this diabetes drug has been used to effectively treat Alzheimer’s disease. The drug decreases the production of a nerve-killing protein that impairs memory growth as well as suppressing inflammation and minimizing oxidation. So by what name do we know this diabetes drug? It’s a formula of GLP-1 and GIP that is proving to be hopeful in neurodegeneration for patients stricken with dementia. Hold on, it’s coming. At this time, it’s the mice that are benefiting the most in this memory restoration magic but soon, it will be available to people. Never fear, our cheese is coming. In the meantime, let the jellyfish protect your memories.
