Glycemic Control and Dementia: The Role of Pharmacotherapy and Vascular Complications

About 25% of people over the age of 65 are living with diabetes, with 90% of them managing type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown that older individuals with type 2 diabetes have a 51-62% higher risk of dementia than those without type 2 diabetes. This study will investigate factors for dementia among Kaiser Permanente Northern California individuals with type 2 diabetes to determine which pattern of glycemic control reduces dementia risk, adjusting for factors such as diabetes treatment and comorbidities.
