  • Discussion as to the factors most commonly responsible for a patient’s cognitive improvement.
  • Insulin resistance is the most common and often the primary underlying trigger of dementia.
  • The most sensitive and effective way to measure insulin resistance in patients is with a Glucose Tolerance Test that includes
  • Insulin measures at fasting, 1-hour and 2-hours at the same times as the glucose measurements.
  • Extending the Glucose Tolerance Test with a 3-hour and 4-hour Glucose helps establish if the patient has reactive hypoglycemia
  • Which is a major risk factor for hypocampal neuron death and progression of dementia.
  • A more comprehensive and inexpensive assessment of a patients genetic mutations is possible using the “raw data file” from a
  • 23andme.com saliva test and the MTHFRsupport.com report. This goes way beyond EPOe4 and MTHFR mutations.
  • Understanding where the genetic mutations are gives us specific understanding on how to improve the downstream biochemical impairments related to each mutation.
  • It’s important to understand that sensitivity to various toxins and exposure to chronic low grade infections lead to chronic inflammation and therefore greater insulin resistance.
  • Testing for mycotoxins, glyphosate, industrial toxin load and heavy metals is a critical step in helping patients restore cognitive function.
  • Please provide 5 interview guide questions. Please be advised that these questions may or may not be used
