The study authors studied extensive clinical data to explore the association between HbA1c and the risk of hospitalization for dementia among persons with type 2 diabetes.

The research observed that patients with a HbA1c of 10.5 percent or higher were 50 percent more likely to be diagnosed with dementia compared to those with HbA1c of 6.5 percent or less.

Dr Aidin Rawshani, the authors said that the positive association between HbA1c and risk of dementia in fairly young patients with type 2 diabetes indicated a potential for prevention of dementia with improved blood sugar control.
