Chronically elevated blood glucose saps cognitive function in older women, according to researchers.   Studies have found a link between chronically elevated blood sugar and mild cognitive impairment or dementia, especially among older people. 

“We already know there’s a connection between diabetes and cognitive problems,” “Type 2 diabetes is a very common and growing problem,” Dr. Yaffe said. “The point is that now you can identify people who are at risk for mild cognitive impairment or dementia and monitor them closely.”
