Alzheimer’s is a progressive, degenerative memory loss disease that affects thinking, language and behavior. Newly released information suggest two different Alzheimer’s links involving cholesterol level and insulin.

Dr. David Samadi explains new evidence pointing to the association between high cholesterol and an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s. Separately, another study suggests that inhaling, not injecting, insulin could prevent or slow the development of Alzheimer’s. Dr. Samadi clarifies that much more research is needed to understand these two potential links to this life-altering disease that affects as many as 5.1 million Americans.

Dr. Samadi is Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.
