There has been a lot in the press about dementia, including the increased risk of dementia in people with diabetes. The March 2015 Newsletter from InDependent Diabetes Trust [IDDT] contains an article about dementia and whether screening the over 65s is a sensible way to proceed. Research suggests that there is a 20-year lead time for cognitive decline, so there is time to prevent or delay the onset of dementia by changes to a healthier lifestyle
IDDT has a series of booklets to help people change their lifestyle looking at meal plans for healthy, everyday eating and a booklet about exercise for all ages.
