Alzheimer Insights by CurationHealth
 
With the stories in the news about drug treatments for diabetes that may help manage Alzheimer’s, are there examples of Alzheimer’s treatments that could prove useful for other conditions?
 
There is good news here for binge eaters, who will be interested in news from the Boston University School of Medicine. Researchers there discovered that memantine, a drug used to tackle moderate to advanced Alzheimer’s, may reduce the compulsive behaviours that lead to binge eating. By studying the changes in chemistry in the part of the brain that controls addictive behaviour, they found that the application of memantine actually suppressed the urge to surrender to temptation.
