Submitted by Information About Diabetes on Mar 30, 2011Most people do not even know that there is a type 3 diabetes let alone what the symptoms are. Before we look at the symptoms let us take a closer look at type 3 diabetes. Type 3 Diabetes
During a study done by the Rhode Island Hospital and Brown Medical School, the researchers discovered that the hormone insulin was not only released from the pancreas but from the brain as well. This discovery is how diabetes and Alzheimer’s became linked. When the brain does not produce enough insulin, the cells begin to die.
Type 3 diabetes is known as a hybrid form of diabetes. A person must first have type 1 or type 2 diabetes to develop type 3 diabetes. Many researchers believe the key to avoided the double dose of diabetes is to maintain a healthy weight. Obesity seems to plan a large role in the double diagnoses and women seem to be hit the hardest by this double diabetes phenomenon.
The Cause of Type 3 Diabetes
Many researchers believe that type 3 diabetes is caused by electropullution. Electropollution is term that refers to exposure to electrical pollution from computers, cell phones, cordless phones, televisions, Ipods, and even fluorescent light bulbs. People who are extra sensitive to electronic devices are at a high risk for developing type 3 diabetes.

The Symptoms of Type 3 Diabetes
Because type 3 diabetes was only discovered in 2005, there is not a long list of symptoms like there is with type 1 and 2 diabetes. In fact, there are very few symptoms of type 3 diabetes. Memory loss, confusion and dementia are the only known symptoms at this point and those symptoms were derived from the newly discovered link to Alzheimers. The diagnosis of type 3 diabetes is done by a functional MRI scan of the brain and often times in older people type 3 diabetes is missed because of the aging process.
Other Uses of the Term Type 3 Diabetes
The term "Type 3 Diabetes" is also widely used "unofficially" within the Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes patient community to mean any family member or close friend whose life is affected by living with or near someone with diabetes.
