What is type 3 diabetes?


This below is from Healthline on type 3 diabetes:


"This “type 3 diabetes” is a term that has been proposed to describe the hypothesis that Alzheimer’s disease, which is a major cause of dementia, is triggered by a type of insulin resistance and insulin-like growth factor dysfunction that occurs specifically in the brain."

Take care.
