E-mail: Background: Compared to patients without diabetic retinopathy (DR), those with DR demonstrate better cognitive performance. It is therefore reasonable to hypothesize that retinal microcirculatory changes might be a marker of impaired cerebral microcirculation. Purpose: To examine the association between the presence of diabetic retinopathy and cerebral perfusion in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Materials and Methods: Ninety-five T2DM patients…

Cerebral perfusion alterations in type 2 diabetes mellitus – a systematic review
Functional perfusion imaging studies indicate that decreased CBF in T2DM may be a potential cause of cognitive impairment, including learning, memory, attention, and executive processing.
The effect of diabetic retinopathy on standing posture during optic flow stimulation.
The increase in muscle activity indicates that there are musculoskeletal and postural changes in the lower limb musculature with increasing severity of diabetic retinopathy, which might negatively affect postural control in a way that is dependent on the severity of retinal damage.


Relationship between diabetic retinopathy and cognitive impairment in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus
According to the TMT and the Brixton test, patients without DR had better performance of working memory and memory flexibility as well as executive functioning compared to DR patients, which indicates lesions of frontal and prefrontal areas of the brain in those patients with DR.
Glucose tolerance status and risk of dementia in the community
It is suggested that diabetes is a significant risk factor for all-cause dementia, Alzheimer disease, and probably vascular dementia (VaD), and 2-hour PG levels, but not FPG levels, are closely associated with increased risk of all- Cause dementia, AD, and VaD.
Diabetes mellitus and the risk of dementia
The diabetes attributable risk for dementia of 8.8% suggests that diabetes may have contributed to the clinical syndrome in a substantial proportion of all dementia patients.
Type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidemia and obesity: A systematic comparison of their impact on cognition.
Decline was found in all cognitive domains, although the effects on cognitive speed, mental flexibility and memory were most consistent, and diabetes and hypertension were clearly associated with cognitive decrements.
Regional distribution and influence on cognition
OBJECTIVEdType 2 diabetes (T2DM) is associated with brain atrophy and cerebrovascular disease. We aimed to define the regional distribution of brain atrophy in T2DM and to examine whether atrophy or
Semi-quantitative assessment of cerebral blood flow with 99mTc-HMPAO SPET in type I diabetic patients with no clinical history of cerebrovascular disease
The results obtained demonstrate the existence of subclinical abnormalities of brain blood perfusion in patients with type I diabetes mellitus and no history of cerebrovascular disease, thereby allowing the initiation of intensive preventive measures.
Influence of Type 2 Diabetes on Brain Volumes and Changes in Brain Volumes
Diabetes is associated with smaller brain volumes in gray but not white matter and increasing ischemic lesion volumes throughout the brain and these markers are associated with but do not fully account for diabetes-related deficits in cognitive function.
Dementia and cognitive decline in type 2 diabetes and prediabetic stages: towards targeted interventions.
Possible opportunities for intervention to improve cognitive outcomes in people with type 2 diabetes are identified, and how treatment can be tailored to individual risk profiles and comorbidities is suggested.
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Alzheimer's Disease: from physiopathology to treatment implications.
Mechanisms suggest that drugs used to ameliorate hyperglycemia and IR may also have beneficial effects in diabetic patients with AD.
Macro- and Microstructural Magnetic Resonance Imaging Indices Associated With Diabetes Among Community-Dwelling Older Adults
In this cross-sectional study, elders with diabetes compared with those without had greater brain atrophy and early signs of neurodegeneration and further studies are needed to determine whether these structural changes associated with diabetes predict risk of cognitive decline.
