HT Ludhiana Live - - Wellness -

Older di­a­bet­ics should keep their sugar level well un­der control if they do not want their brain to go bonkers, ac­cord­ing to a lat­est study. The study done by sci­en­tists from San Fran­cisco’s Univer­sity and VA Med­i­cal Cen­tre, di­a­betes mel­li­tus and poor glu­cose control in older and well func­tion­ing adults were found to be linked with higher cog­ni­tive de­cline and re­duced cog­ni­tive func­tions. Af­ter ex­am­in­ing 3,069 el­derly peo­ple with di­a­betes, the re­search con­cluded that poor glycemic control can led to im­proper brain func­tion­ing in older adults.
