Diabetes 2 Diabetes and cognitive dysfunction

  title={Diabetes 2 Diabetes and cognitive dysfunction},
  author={R. McCrimmon and C. Ryan and B. Frier},
Cognitive dysfunction in type 1 and type 2 diabetes share many similarities, but important diff erences do exist. A primary distinguishing feature of type 2 diabetes is that people with this disorder often (but not invariably) do poorly on measures of learning and memory, whereas defi cits in these domains are rarely seen in people with type 1 diabetes. Chronic hyperglycaemia and microvascular disease contribute to cognitive dysfunction in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and both disorders are… Expand
Examining stability of independent component analysis based on coefficient and component matrices for voxel-based morphometry of structural magnetic resonance imaging
It was revealed that the VBMs of the region of the HC group were significantly correlated with Montreal Cognitive Assessment describing the level of cognitive disorder, and a novel approach to examine the stability of ICA decomposition by fusion the Stability Index for both coefficient matrix and the component matrix was proposed.

Cognitive dysfunction in patients with type 2 diabetes
It is shown that type 2 diabetes is associated with modest cognitive decrements in non‐demented patients that evolve only slowly over time, but also with an increased risk of more severe cognitive deficits and dementia. Expand
Diabetes, aging, and cognitive decline

It now appears that psychomotor slowing is the fundamental cognitive deficit associated with diabetes mellitus; why other cognitive skills are relatively unaffected remains poorly understood. Expand
Type 2 diabetes and risk of cognitive impairment and dementia

A review of the evidence on diabetes and increased risk of dementia and cognitive impairment, a discussion of different possible mechanisms, and remaining gaps in knowledge are presented. Expand
Cognition and diabetes: a lifespan perspective
This Personal View investigates the hypothesis that clinically relevant diabetes-related cognitive decrements mainly occur at two crucial periods in life: when the brain is developing in childhood, and when thebrain undergoes neurodegenerative changes associated with ageing. Expand
Brain Imaging in Patients With Diabetes
The aim was to systematically review brain imaging studies in patients with diabetes and found that an increasing number of studies report both focal vascular and more global cerebral changes, but the results are not always consistent. Expand
Hyperglycaemia as a determinant of cognitive decline in patients with type 1 diabetes.
It can be hypothesized that hyperglycaemia associated microvascular changes in the brain are responsible for the cognitive decline in patients with type 1 diabetes. Expand
Preliminary evidence for brain complications in obese adolescents with type 2 diabetes mellitus
This is the first report documenting possible brain abnormalities among obese adolescents with type 2 diabetes relative to obese adolescent controls, and assessments using diffusion tensor imaging revealed reduced white matter volume and grey matter microstructural integrity. Expand
Hippocampal damage and memory impairments as possible early brain complications of type 2 diabetes
The results suggest that the medial temporal lobe may be the first brain site affected by type 2 diabetes and that individuals in poorer metabolic control may be affected to a greater extent. Expand
Risk of dementia in diabetes mellitus: a systematic review
The findings of mechanistic studies suggest that vascular disease and alterations in glucose, insulin, and amyloid metabolism underlie the pathophysiology of dementia, but which of these mechanisms are clinically relevant is unclear. Expand
Metabolic and vascular determinants of impaired cognitive performance and abnormalities on brain magnetic resonance imaging in patients with type 2 diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is associated with modest impairments in cognition, as well as atrophy and vascular lesions on MRI, and chronic hyperglycaemia, hyperinsulinaemia and hypertension may play additional roles. Expand
