The discovery of the nasal spray is not new, this spray is being developed to help people, those who are suffering from the similar kind of disease.  Although, the nasal spray was developed for clod and nose related disease and it was not initially designed for Alzheimer’s patients. However, it shows some success in healing Alzheimer’s and already in use as an insulin nasal spray. A group of researchers at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, NC, discovered that the nasal spray seems to help patients with Alzheimer’s.

According to The Mayo Clinic experts, when there are issues with insulin levels, it could simply promote other problems such as anxiety, confusion, visual difficulties and heart palpitations. They also state that deformities in insulin levels could be a major factor, which leads to Alzheimer’s in the first place.

A study was conducted where 60 adults were chosen in two groups,  who had been diagnosed with either mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or who were in the early or moderate stages of Alzheimer’s. The individuals were divided into three different groups. One group were given 40 IU’s of the insulin determir, another group were given 20 IU’s of insulin and the remaining group were given a placebo. After providing these three different doses daily for 21 days, the researchers have seen “significant improvement” in the group who received the 40 IU’s of the insulin nasal spray, their ability to retain and remember new information were improved.

Suzanne Craft, a PhD research, was talking about the study said that, “This study provides preliminary evidence that insulin detemir can provide effective treatment for people diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s-related dementia similar to our previous work with regular insulin”. Dr. Aggarwal, from the Cognitive Neurologist at the Rush University Medical Center said that, “If a certain part of the brain doesn’t utilize the sugar properly, then a person develops the Alzheimer’s disease. That’s why the insulin spray required and administered directly to the brain”.

Although the sample size of the study was relatively small, But the study also revealed some other facts that a specific gene makes some people more susceptible to get Alzheimer’s, the gene is named APOE-e4. After the study, it has been seen that the individual who had the APOE-e4 gene and taken the larger dose of the nasal spray had higher memory test results than the others who received the lower dose or the placebo.

In the study, the insulin nasal spray was used was an insulin detemir. This form is a longer lasting spray compared to the traditional insulin available in the market. The individuals in the study hardly experienced any side effects.
