Type 3 diabetes
Type 3 diabetes is a proposed term for Alzheimer's disease resulting from an insulin resistance in the brain. The categorization is not embraced by the medical community, though a limited number of published reviews have forwarded putative mechanisms linking Alzheimer's and insulin resistance.
The term has been widely applied within alternative healthcare circles.
