Results From a Feasibility Study of Square-Stepping Exercise in Older Adults with Type 2 Diabetes and Self-Reported Cognitive Complaints to Improve Global Cognitive Functioning

ConclusionsSSE should be evaluated further to improve its feasibility in older adults with type 2 diabetes. This study provides preliminary evidence that SSE improves executive function in adults with type 2 diabetes and self-reported cognitive complaints.RésuméObjectifsLes adultes atteints de diabète sucré de type 2 sont à risque accru de démence. Par conséquent, nous avons proposé une initiative appelée programme d'exercice par étapes (SSE) dans le but d'atténuer ce risque. Notre objectif principal était d'évaluer la faisabilité de la SSE chez les adultes atteints de diabète de type 2 et les plaintes auto-déclarées de troubles cognitifs. Notre objectif secondaire était de déterminer si les 24 semaines de SSE amélioraient la cognition. Notre objectif tertiaire était de déterminer si le SSE améliorait le temps de réaction de l'antisaccade oculaire, qui est une mesure du contrôle oculomoteur lié à la fonction exécutive.MéthodesDes adultes de plus de 49 ans atteints de diabète de type 2 et manifestant des plaintes auto-déclarées de troubles cognitifs ont été répartis au hasard entre: un groupe SSE (2×X/semaine pour 24 semaines de SSE) ou un groupe témoin. La faisabilité a été évaluée par le ...

A, Lima LM Abstract A sedentary life-style is a significant public health issue. It increases the incidence of type-2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) and systemic arterial hypertension (SAH), which in turn may impair physical and mental health. In fact, disrupted glucose metabolism is one of the characteristics of Alzheimer's dementia, and it is often dubbed as type-3 diabetes. The purpose of this crosssectional study was to assess the level of activity, body composition, cardio-vascular risk and cognitive profile of patients with DM2 and/or SAH. Various parameters were evaluated, such as anthropo-metric variables, pedo-...

Conclusions: Some comorbidities were present in both the AD and control groups, while others were found in the AD group and not in the control group, and vice versa.

Abstract Recent studies continue to find evidence linking Type 2 diabetes (T2D) with Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common cause of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Insulin resistance or dysfunction of insulin signaling is a universal feature of T2D, the main culprit for altered glucose metabolism and its interdependence on cell death pathways, forming the basis of linking T2D with AD as it may exacerbate Aβ accumulation, tau hyperphosphorylation and devastates glucose transportation, energy metabolism, hippocampal framewor...

ConclusionsCurrently there is not enough irrefutable evidence to support the hypothesis of positive effects of incretins on cognition. Further clinical studies need to be performed.

Abstract Ketogenic diets have been proposed as a non-pharmacological strategy for the management of several chronic conditions. Their efficacy and safety have been evaluated in the field of neurology, oncology and endocrinology for disorders including cancer, dementia, drug-resistant epilepsy, migraines, obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The nutritional requirements of these subjects are expected to differ significantly. Indeed, although all ketogenic diets restrict carbohydrates, each intervention is characterized by a specific daily calorie intake, macronutrient composition and dur...
