Ep. 302 – Should Diabetes Medications Be Used to Prevent Diseases Like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s?

Happy Monday Train Your Brain Podcast listeners! Today we are going to discuss a controversial new treatment plan for the prevention of diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Doctor Trayford explains that doctors are now prescribing diabetes medications as a way for regulating blood sugar in the brain which is usually linked to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

Episodes 92, 99, 106 and 121 are on blood sugar so feel free to go back and give those episodes a listen so that you can more fully understand the effects of blood sugar on the brain. Dr. Trayford has taught us that fuel to the brain is important. Though, instead of regulating blood sugar through medication, it would be optimal to first turn to lifestyle improvements. There is a time and a place for most interventions. So, talk to your doctor.

The tip for today is to skip the carbs on the buffet line. Load up on veggies and protein instead and save your brain from a blood sugar trip. Thanks for listening!

Train Your Brain Podcast logo

Your Brain Training coach Dr. Trayford is bringing you tip number 298 today. This is a topic we’ve been hearing a lot about. Of course nutrition is a highly controversial subject, but Dr. Trayford likes to sift through the arguments on both sides and share the facts. Grass fed cows have the appropriate fats and proteins that provide us with the nutrients and proteins that we need. The meat will contain better fats: less saturated fat and more essential fatty acids. Making this switch will allow you to not need to take extra supplements. Thanks for listening!
