Poor Diabetes Control Linked to Higher Rate of Cognitive Decline

Poorly controlled diabetes could lead to a faster rate of long term cognitive decline compared to persons with good diabetic control, according to a recent study published in Diabetologia, the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD). The study included data drawn from English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, led by Dr Wuxiang Xie, School of Public Health, Imperial College London, London, UK, and Peking University Clinical Research Institute, Beijing, China, and colleagues.
