ST. PAUL, Minn. A world-renowned Alzheimers expert took the stage at the Minnesota State Fair to discuss the latest research breakthroughs and other developments with the disease.

Dr. William Frey, of the HealthPartners Neuroscience Center, joined KARE 11s Karla Hult to explain the latest findings from the recent Alzheimers Association International Conference and the research being done at the St. Paul medical center. Frey developed the intranasal insulin treatment that has been shown in multiple clinical trials to safely improve memory, attention and function in both Alzheimers patients and those with Mild Cognitive Impairment.

Frey also addressed specific behavioral and diet changes people can make to help ward off the disease, including a diet rich in leafy vegetables, nuts and fish. He also noted exercise and ongoing social engagement and education have been shown to help prevent or delay the disease.

Frey whose official title is Senior Research Director of HealthPartners Neurosciences and HealthPartners Center for Memory & Aging at the HealthPartners Neuroscience Center said his team is also still looking for more participants in the intranasal insulin study.
