elderly_women_pair_alzheimers_diseasePeople with Alzheimer's disease tend to have lower glucose utilization in the brain than people who are not inflicted with Alzheimer’s disease and that those decreased levels may be detectable approximately 20 years prior to the first symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, according to new researcher from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

The study is published online in the journal Translational Neuroscience.
