Significant regional differences in gray and white matter volume and subtle cognitive differences between young diabetic and nondiabetic children have been observed. Here, we assessed whether these differences change over time and the relation with dysglycemia. Children ages 4 to <10 years with (n = 144) and without (n = 72) type 1 diabetes (T1D) had high-resolution structural MRI and comprehensive neurocognitive tests at baseline and 18 months and continuous glucose monitoring and HbA1c… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Variations in Brain Volume and Growth in Young Children With Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
It is demonstrated that early-onset type 1 diabetes has widespread effects on the growth of gray and white matter in children whose blood glucose levels are well within the current treatment guidelines for the management of diabetes.
Compensatory Hyperconnectivity in Developing Brains of Young Children With Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
The observed positive association of connectivity with cognitive functioning in T1D, without overall group differences in cognitive function, suggests a putative compensatory role of hyperintrinsic connectivity in the brain in children with this condition.
Longitudinal assessment of hippocampus structure in children with type 1 diabetes
TLDR
Although longitudinal hippocampus growth did not differ between children with T1D and healthy control children, slower growth of the hippocampus was associated with both increased exposure to hyperglycemia (interval HbA1c) and greater glycemic variability (MAGE) in T1C.
Large Changes in Brain Volume Observed in an Asymptomatic Young Child With Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
This case was recorded during the Diabetes Research in Children Network (DirecNet) longitudinal study, in which children had MRI scans at three time points over 5 years, and one subject with diabetes had unusually large brain volume changes from age 6.5 to age 8.0 years.
Regional Gray Matter Volumes as Related to Psychomotor Slowing in Adults with Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
For middle-aged adults with T1D and cerebral microvascular disease, GMV of basal ganglia may play a critical role in regulating psychomotor speed, as measured via DSST.
Impact of Early Diabetic Ketoacidosis on the Developing Brain
TLDR
A single episode of moderate/severe DKA in young children at diagnosis is associated with lower cognitive scores and altered brain growth, suggesting earlier diagnosis of type 1 diabetes and prevention of DKA may reduce the long-term effect of ketoacidosis on the developing brain.
Longitudinal Evaluation of Cognitive Functioning in Young Children with Type 1 Diabetes over 18 Months
TLDR
Cognitive domain scores did not differ between groups at the 18 month testing session and did not change differently between groups over the follow-up period, however, within the T1D group, a history of diabetic ketoacidosis was correlated with lower Verbal IQ and greater hyperglycemia exposure was inversely correlated to executive functions test performance.
Persistence of abnormalities in white matter in children with type 1 diabetes
TLDR
It is suggested that hyperglycaemia is associated with altered white matter development, which may contribute to the mild cognitive deficits in this population of children with type 1 diabetes.
Brain Function Differences in Children With Type 1 Diabetes: A Functional MRI Study of Working Memory
TLDR
Increased modulation of activation may occur as a compensatory mechanism, helping in part to preserve working memory ability, and further, that children with an earlier onset require additional compensation is suggested.
Voxel-based morphometry reveals regional reductions of gray matter volume in school-aged children with short-term type 1 diabetes mellitus
TLDR
It is suggested that short-term T1DM could lead to regional structural brain deficits in school-aged children, and poor recent glycemic control may have an adverse effect on GMV in the LMTG and LTP-FIG in T1 DM children.

Neuroanatomical Correlates of Dysglycemia in Young Children With Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
Early-onset T1D affects regions of the brain that are associated with typical cognitive development, and cognitive correlations of intelligence quotient to GMV were found in cerebellar-occipital regions and medial prefrontal cortex for control subjects, as expected, but not for the T2D group.
Central Nervous System Function in Youth With Type 1 Diabetes 12 Years After Disease Onset
TLDR
Brain effects 12 years after diagnosis in a type 1 diabetic sample whose IQ at diagnosis matched that of control subjects suggest several neuropathological processes including gliosis, demyelination, and altered osmolarity.
White Matter Structural Differences in Young Children With Type 1 Diabetes: A Diffusion Tensor Imaging Study
TLDR
Children with type 1 diabetes had significantly different WM structure (as measured by AD) when compared with controls and WM structural differences ( as measured by RD) were significantly correlated with their HbA1c values.
Alterations in White Matter Structure in Young Children With Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
The results suggest vulnerability of the developing brain in young children to effects of type 1 diabetes associated with chronic hyperglycemia and glucose variability and a significant association between WM structure and cognitive ability in children withType 1 diabetes but not in control subjects.
White Matter Microstructural Integrity in Youth With Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
Vulnerability of the superior parietal lobule, hippocampus, and thalamus to glycemic extremes during brain development is suggested and microstructural integrity of white matter is added to the range of structural brain alterations seen in T1DM youth.
Cognitive Functioning in Young Children with Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
Assessment of cognitive functioning in children with type 1 diabetes supported that the degree of hyperglycemia was associated with Executive Functions, and to a lesser extent, Child IQ and Learning and Memory.
Prospectively Determined Impact of Type 1 Diabetes on Brain Volume During Development
TLDR
It is demonstrated that within diabetes, exposure to hyperglycemia and severe hypoglycemia may result in subtle deviation from normal developmental trajectories of the brain.
Cognitive Function in Children With Type 1 Diabetes
TLDR
Pediatric diabetes generally relates to mildly lower cognitive scores across most cognitive domains, with moderately lower performance compared with control subjects, and Cognitive effects are most pronounced and pervasive for EOD.
Influence of an early-onset age of type 1 diabetes on cerebral structure and cognitive function.
TLDR
An early childhood onset of type 1 diabetes was associated with mild central brain atrophy and significant differences in intellectual performance in adulthood, implying that neurodevelopment may be adversely affected by EOD.
