Yes. Type 3 diabetes is a term used when Alzheimer’s disease is triggered by insulin resistance in the brain. This condition is most often used to describe people who have type 2 diabetes and are also diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

You can see that type 3 is diabetes+Alzheimer’s disease, whereas type 2 diabetes means you have only diabetes.
