Abstract

Research has suggested that diabetic status doubles the risk of dementia.1 There is also a suggestion that efficient glucose regulation in healthy older adults contributes to the stability of cognitive skills, particularly in domains subserved by the hippocampus (eg, episodic memory which is known to decline in dementia).2 Consequently, the present work is a timely contribution in understanding the relationship between the blood glucose and risk for dementia.
