Type 2 diabetes is known to be associated with dementia. Investigators at the National Taiwan University in Taipei and several other research centers in Taiwan, looked at the severity of Type 2 diabetes and the risk of dementia to learn whether dementia could be expected when other complications developed. Their study, reported on in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism in July 2015, included 431,178 Type 2 diabetics more than 50 years of age. The adapted Diabetes Complications Severity Index (DCSI) was used as a practical measure of how much diabetes was affecting each participant's health overall. Rather than blood sugar levels, the DCSI assesses how much damage the diabetes disease has done. It was found after 12 years the Type 2 diabetic's DCSI scores were dramatically related to the risk of dementia. Participants with the highest DCSI scores had 24 times the risk of dementia as did the participants with the lowest number of complications. From the above results it was concluded DCSI scores could be used to predict which patients were likely to develop dementia. The DCSI score was invented to predict which sufferers were at risk for complications associated with their Type 2 diabetes and hospitalization. In November of 2012 the American Journal of Managed Care reported on a study performed at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, United States. The study examined four years of health insurance records on 138,615 individuals with Type 2 diabetes. Seven common complications of diabetes were rated for severity on a 0 to 7 scale, for a possible score of 0 to 13. It was found the risk of hospitalization was directly related to the DCSI score. It was concluded the score was an accurate measure of the severity of diabetes complications, since it correlated well with hospitalizations. In 2008 the American Journal of Managed Care reported the DCSI score was developed with a questionnaire asking Type 2 diabetics if they suffered from the following complications... heart and blood vessel disease peripheral vascular disease (cramping pain with exercise) kidney disease eye problems stroke nerve disease (numbness and tingling in hands and feet) metabolic problems (blood sugar levels out of control). The Alzheimer's Association defines dementia as a "decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life." In this century people are frequently old longer than they are young, so being able to maintain normal daily life independently is important. Preventing the complications above is a good way to help prevent dementia as well. Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets. Article Source:
