According to the American Diabetes Association, people with persistently high blood glucose tend to develop lesions on the brain later in life that are characteristic of Alzheimer's disease. Diabetes increases the risk of getting Alzheimer's disease and may speed dementia once it strikes. Doctors long suspected diabetes damaged blood vessels that supply the brain. It now seems that the damage may start before someone is diagnosed with full-blown diabetes, back when the body is gradually losing its ability to regulate blood sugar. According to the findings, brain functioning subtly slows as Type 2 diabetics' blood-sugar rises, well before people have any obvious memory problems. [1], [2]

Charcot's joint (primarily affects the feet), diabetic hand (carpel tunnel), osteoarthritis and frozen shoulder are the most common conditions that are associated with diabetes and joint pain.

The UCSD scientists proved that, by disabling the inflammatory pathway of these white blood cells, insulin resistance and the resulting Type 2 diabetes can be prevented. [3]
