Obesity is associated with cognitive dysfunction, for which changes in the hippocampus plausibly play a pivotal role. We tested the hypothesis that an elevated level of visceral fat accumulation (VFA) correlates with hippocampus volume and insulin resistance in non-dementia patients with type 2 diabetes. Subjects included 48 non-dementia patients with type 2 diabetes, who were divided into two groups, high VFA group (mean+/-standard deviation: age=65+/-6 years, n=30) and normal VFA group (65… CONTINUE READING

We tested the hypothesis that an elevated level of visceral fat accumulation ( VFA ) correlates with hippocampus volume and insulin resistance in non - dementia patients with type 2 diabetes .
Our results indicate that the elevated level of VFA in Japanese non - dementia patients with type 2 diabetes is characterized by increased hippocampus volume and insulin resistance , and that the Z - score and HOMA index are independent predictors of VFA .
