Impact of metabolic control on cognitive function and quality of life in elderly diabetic patients

Summary

Life expectancy and prevalence of Diabetes Mellitus are both rising, therefore more and more elderly will live and suffer from complications of this disease. Increasing evidence suggests that diabetes contributes to cognitive impairment in the elderly which in turn affects their ability to manage diet and therapy and this affects their quality of life. The research aims to correlate metabolic parameters in Diabetes Mellitus with the risk of developing mild cognitive impairment and dementia in elderly, correlate the therapeutic management of diabetes with patients' cognitive function and quality of life and set up new methods of maintaining a good quality of life for diabetic elderly population.

So far randomisation of subjects (according to the initial work plan) database organisation and necessary administrative and financial procedures have commenced.
