Compared to nondiabetics, Canadian researchers say people with diabetes have a greater rate of decline in cognitive function and a greater risk of cognitive decline.
According to the researchers, individuals with diabetes had a 1.2- to 1.5-fold greater change over time in measures of cognitive function than did those without diabetes.
“Cognitive dysfunction should therefore be added to the list of chronic complications of diabetes.”
