Hi Friends,

I have to ask,
Are there any studies that link Diabetes to early Dementia?
Just wondering…

Yes, and it is getting called type 3 diabetes. It seems to only effect the brain. It's a new concept and not widely accepted yet. More has to be done, but if you look up type 3 or brain diabetes, you might find more information.

Wow, never heard of type 3 Diabetes. Sounds interesting. My grandmother and mother were 94 when they died and for the last few years of their lives had dementia (not Alzheimers). There is a difference between dementia, senility, and Alzheimers.

Yes, my grandmother also died at 94 and she had dementia. She remembered a lot of her younger years and combined it with current times. Made for very interesting conversations.
