Obesity And Diabetes Hurt The Brain
Researchers have discovered that obesity has negative effects on the brain, especially in individuals who have diabetes. It showed the overweight individuals with type two diabetes had thinner volumes of gray matter. Gray matter is an important part of the brain that helps with cognitive function. As we get older it deteriorates. Having type 2 diabetes and being overweight increases that process. More research is being conducted on this subject, but doctors are being urged to tell their diabetic patients to work towards a healthier weight.
