Author(s): Swaleha Madani and Nusrat Hamdani
Aim: The aim of this study is to find the co-relation between cognition and duration of 10 years of type II diabetes in middle aged subjects of 45-59 years. Method: A group consisting of 30 diabetic (type II, 0-10 years) participants was taken using random sampling. The sample included both the genders of 45-59 years of age group with normal BMI (18.50-24.99 kg/m2).PGI memory scale was administered to assess memory and various cognitive parameters. Result: The mean and S.D value of age was 52.56 ± 5.309 years. PGI memory scale was administered and obtained scores were correlated withduration of diabetes and cognitive decline (highest possible score being 115).Pearson correlation coefficient (r)for PGIMS and duration of diabetes was found to be r= -0.37) at a statistically high level of significance (p_< 0.03) ascerting cognitive decline with increased duration of diabetes type II. Conclusion: The negative correlation obtained between the duration of diabetes type II and PGIMS scores in the study/project are indicative of marked decline in cognitive functioning with increased duration of diabetes type II.
