Type 3 diabetes


Insulin is not just produced in the pancreas, but also in the brain. This raises the possibility of a Type 3 diabetes.


Researchers at Rhode Island Hospital and Brown Medical School have discovered that insulin and its related proteins are produced in the brain, and that reduced levels of both are linked to Alzheimer's disease. The findings are reported in the March 2005 issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.
