Is diabetes shrinking my brain?

Posted by @Margaret_Marie in Diabetes/Endocrine System, Apr 30, 2014

Could diabetes be shrinking your brain? A new research study published in Radiology examined more than 600 brain scans of individuals ages 55 and older with type 2 diabetes. The results showed individuals "who lived with diabetes longest had smaller brain volumes." Dr. Roberts says, "Somehow diabetes is doing something to the brain that results in tissue loss (death of cells)."
