A recent study has highlighted the association between diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) with lower cognitive performance in people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) of f <10 years of known duration. DPN was found to be inversely and significantly associated with measures of immediate recall and processing speed. The study was published in the Journal of Diabetes and its Complications on 15 September 2021.
There is a lack of studies examining measures of cognition are related to DPN presence and/or cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN). Also, data regarding actors potentially explaining such associations are lacking. To fill this knowledge gap, Joshua I. Barzilay, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, USA, and colleagues recruited participants from the Glycemia Reduction Approaches in Diabetes Study (GRADE) that examined 5047 middle-aged people with type 2 diabetes of <10 years of known duration.
