What we are studying
The BEAM study will examine the effects of a low-carbohydrate and higher-carbohydrate diet on people with mild memory loss and those with pre-diabetes. Information collected will help determine changes in cognitive function, brain structure and function, and levels of certain proteins and hormones in body fluids. This information will be collected from 75 people and compared between three study groups. Group 1 will include 15 people with no memory problems or concerns. Group 2 will include 30 people with no memory problems or concerns, but do have pre-diabetes. Group 3 will include 30 people with mild memory problems.
Group 1 - total of $80; Groups 2 & 3 - total of $295
