Alzheimer's & Diabetes

Now there is a correlation.

Swedish researchers looked at 1173 people over 75 and concluded that people with borderline type 2 diabetes — that is, chronically elevated blood sugar — were some 70% likelier to develop Alzheimer’s than those with normal sugar levels. Another study, based in the U.S., looked at the medical records of 22,852 type 2 diabetics, none of whom had any sort of dementia at the outset, and found that the more elevated their blood sugar tended to be, the bigger the risk they’d develop Alzheimer’s.
