Abstract

There is a widespread consensus that diabetes impairs cognitive functioning. However, some recent findings have shown that many health conditions generally thought to be detrimental to cognitive functioning are in fact linked to pre-morbid cognitive ability, suggesting reverse causation. To better understand the causality in diabetes-cognition relationship, this study investigates the association of older-age diabetes with concurrent and childhood cognitive functioning.
