Study shows dementia risk increases the earlier a person develops diabetes

New research published in Diabetologia shows an association between type 2 diabetes (T2D) and developing dementia in later life—with the risk of dementia increasing the earlier a person develops T2D. The study is by Ph.D. student Jiaqi Hu and Professor Elizabeth Selvin of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, MD, U.S., and colleagues.
