Diabetic Digest - Wednesday, April 11, 2007
News, updates and help from and for the diabetic community.


Spring has sprung, but the weather is not improving as 
I would have hoped. When the weather does improve I'm 
looking forward to expanding my exercise activities to 
the outdoor arena. 

I'm looking forward to long, brisk walks, biking, swimming, 
tennis and the list goes on. 

I know that some of you out there are just as excited as I 
am about taking advantage of the beautiful weather that is 
headed our way. Don't try and deny it. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. 
And think warm thoughts.

Diabetes Ups Risk of Mild Memory Trouble

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - A new study suggests that
diabetes is a significant risk factor for a type of
memory problem that doctors call "amnestic mild cognitive

While occasionally forgetting names or misplacing objects 
are signs of normal forgetfulness, continual forgetfulness 
may be a sign of amnestic mild cognitive impairment, which 
is considerably more serious, experts say. 

Amnestic mild cognitive impairment is thought to represent 
a transitional stage between normal memory and thinking and 
the impairment seen with Alzheimer's disease, Dr. Jose A. 
Luchsinger, from Columbia University in New York, and 
colleagues note in the Archives of Neurology for April. 

In an earlier study, the researchers had tied diabetes to 
Alzheimer's disease and dementia. In their latest study, 
they focused on the possible link with mild cognitive 
impairment, especially "amnestic MCI." 

Their study involved 918 subjects, older than 65 years, 
who had no evidence of cognitive dysfunction at the outset. 
Cognitive testing and physical examinations were performed 
at the start of the study and then again every 18 months. 

During an average of about 6 years, 160 subjects developed 
amnestic MCI. 

Diabetes, which was present in nearly 24 percent of the 
subjects, was associated with a 1.5-fold increased risk of 
developing amnestic MCI, the team reports. 

These results "provide further support to the potentially 
important independent role of diabetes" in the development 
of Alzheimer's disease, they conclude.
