remember Alzheimers being referred as 3rd stage insulin resistance, with diabetes being the second

It's more "type 3", since the diabetic types aren't stages. Also, patients can show brain insulin resistance without showing peripheral insulin resistance (diabetes). That's the crazy part.

I have heard of that back when my father was alive and I researched the heck out of Alzheimers to better help him.

It was referred to as 'type 3' diabetes as I recall, as analogus to diabetes in the brain, I'm sure that could have covered an additional progression from type 2 but that it could manifest separately as well.
