There are so many theories out there. I’ve also read it’s due to our gut bacteria.

I stick to 80% genetics. 20% nurture. And meds help if you have symptoms,

Maybe it does. Glucose triggers insulin response. Insulin has various functions not just converting excess glucose into fats. Alzheimer’s is being considered type 3 diabetes.

PCOS and infertility is sometimes associated with insulin resistance.

yeah

it is thought from too along ago that mental illness caused by DNA and DNA cause some ppl to be high risk to get scz

and we all know we have relatives who had scz

Nice to see you @Daze .:slightly_smiling_face:
