    Department of Neurology, Univaersity Medial Center, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Diabetes 55:1800-6. 2006
    ..We conclude that cognition in older type 1 diabetic patients is only mildly disturbed. Chronic exposure to hyperglycemia is in itself, even at older age, apparently not sufficient to have considerable impact on the brain...
