Lisa, it was a good show.  Most of what he talked about we already know as Best Practices, but it was nice to visualize.  He talked about the link between diabetes and AD.  He also showed an Alzheimer brain specimen vs a  normal brain specimen.  I will look for a link to the video.  Usually they post the video after the show airs.

30 minutes of the 60 minute show was devoted to Alzheimer's. The shows theme was ageing.  DR.OZ introduced a link between Altheimer'sl and diabetes. Dr. Oz brought up the things you can do to prevent Alzheimer's rather than what can be done for people that already have it. Things like a positive attitude, exercise, diet, and taking your medicines. He did state that there is no cure, but he did say as more people are aging more people will get Akzheimer's, Something like 1 in 6 over 65, and under 65 is usually genetic. ( not in my case, I'm 62 got AD at 60, no others in my family had or has Alzheimer's ).  Dr OZ also said the future looks good for continuing research, but it will take time;, may be 10 years to find a cure. He talked about eatly detection pet scan trials. I did one of these at Stanford .I was surprised  that he didn't bring up a current controversial subject, genetic testing for the Alzheimer's gene.

The link was only a promo for the show.


I spent fruitless time looking a link for the same day for the Today Show. It, too, was supposed to have a segment. No luck.

Here is a link for the video of the first segment of Dr. Oz's show about Alzheimer's.  I believe there are 4 parts.

Dr. Lisa Genova was one of the two guests on Dr. Oz's show.  She had a nice segment last Thursday on FOX about Treating Alzheimer's.  Here is a link to that show:

Iris,

 

Thanks so much for posting that clip.  Dr. Genova is a wonderful person.  I met her when I was on the Early Stage Advisory Board.

 

I thought she had written another book??

 

Thanks for sharing.

 

Peace and Hope,

 

 

Lisa

Lisa, I had not heard about another book.  Perhaps there is information on her website or her FB page.
