Poorly controlled Diabetes can lead to Dementia
Researchers determined that the main reason why diabetic people age 60 and older scored low on a cognitive function test was because of improper management of their disease.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 16 million people in the United States have diabetes and about 800,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.
“We knew there was an association between diabetes and dementia in older people,” said Yousef Mohammad, a study co-author and an assistant professor of neurology at Ohio State University. “But we found out that there is a difference in cognitive capability between diabetics whose disease is under control and those whose disease isn’t adequately controlled. The prevalence of dementia will likely increase as the U.S. population ages,” he said.
