More Evidence Found for Link between Sugar and Alzheimer’s Disease
A recent research suggests that people with high blood sugar experience worse long-term cognitive decline compared to their peers with the normal level of blood sugar.
For their study, a team of researchers tracked 5,189 participants, including 55% women, whose average age was 66 years. They analyzed their level of cognitive function between 2004–2005 and 2014–2015. Over time, the scientists monitored levels of HbA1c, or glycated hemoglobin, a measure of blood sugar control.
The analysis of the received data showed that participants with greater levels of HbA1c experienced much higher rate of decline.
The researchers, led by epidemiologist Wuxiang Xie from Imperial College London, explain in their paper: “Our findings suggest that interventions that delay diabetes onset, as well as management strategies for blood sugar control, might help alleviate the progression of subsequent decline over the long-term.”
