A new study links diabetes and Alzheimer's

We hear from a Montreal neurologist and Alzheimer's researcher on the latest findings in a Japanese study.

Dr. Ziad Nasreddine says the researchers followed more one thousand people 60 years and older for fifteen years. The study found that subjects with diabetes at 60 were twice as likely to develop dementia compared to those people who did not have the diabetes

He sees it as a call to a healthy lifestyle and a need to treat diabetes aggressively.
