It's starting to look as though anything you do to lower your risk of diabetes may also lower your risk of getting Alzheimer's.

There is a connection between Alzheimer's and diabetes (and it looks as though the link is probably the diabetes rather than the treatment for it).

The earlier the diabetes develops (we're talking about Type 2 diabetes here) the greater the risk of subsequent Alzheimer's.

So, if you are at risk of diabetes, anything you do to reduce your diabetes risk should also reduce your risk of Alzheimer's in later life.
