This study aimed to examine the association between diabetes and hyperglycaemia—assessed by HbA1c—and change in cognitive function in persons with and without diabetes. This was a prospective cohort study of 8,442 non-diabetic and 516 diabetic participants in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study. We examined the association of baseline(More)
Lower-extremity wounds are a major complication of diabetes. Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) reflects glycemia over 2-3 months and is the standard measure used to monitor glycemia in diabetic patients, but results from studies have not shown a consistent association of HbA1c with wound healing. We hypothesized that elevated HbA1c would be most associated with poor(More)
Diabetes is associated with dementia in older adults, but it remains unclear whether nondemented adults with type 2 diabetes show subtle abnormalities across cognition, neuroanatomy, and everyday functioning. Using the Aging, Brain Imaging, and Cognition study sample of 301 community-dwelling, middle-aged and older adults, we conducted a secondary analysis(More)

OBJECTIVE To characterize the association of low HbA(1c) values (<4.0%) with liver enzymes and steatosis. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Cross-sectional study of 12,533 participants without diabetes aged <20 years in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1988-1994). Logistic regression models were adjusted for demographic, lifestyle,(More)
