A North American study has demonstrated that the brains of type one diabetics of middle age or older showed structural changes in brain volume and white matter compared to similar aged and demographically similar control subjects without diabetes. MRI studies were used.

The differences are the equivalent of 4 to 9 years difference in brain aging.

The study was published in Diabetes Care.
