A study looked at the relationship of Adiposity and Visceral Fat to Hippocampus Volume in people with diabetes.
The hippocampus is a structure on either side of the deep brain, (part of the limbic system), that plays a significant role in the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory.
It is one of the first areas of the brain to suffer damage and demonstrate abnormal imaging in people with Alzheimer’s. A Brain MRI with NeurQuant Analysis will show a loss of hippocampus volume relatively early in the course of Alzheimer’s.
People with Visceral Obesity demonstrated a loss of volume in the hippocampus. This is a compelling reason to measure Visceral Fat and work to lower it to a safe range.
Individuals who do the Fasting Mimicking Diet (Prolon), can have their body composition measured at no additional charge one time after each fast.
