Abstract

Background: In elderly Type 2 Diabetic patients cognitive function may get adversely affected. Diabetic patients are more prone to develop memory loss. Material & Methods: 30 Type 2 Diabetic patients and 30 normal healthy individuals whose age and sex matched with the cases were selected for the study. EEG recordings were done using Neuromax 64 channel instrument by MEDICAID systems and cognitive function was assessed using Mini mental status examination scores. Results: Elderly Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients have decreased cognitive function (MCI - Mild Cognitive Impairment). Slow wave activity is increased in type 2 diabetic patients compared to controls. Theta and Delta wave activity is also increased in cases compared to controls. EEG also showed increased alpha 2 wave activity and decreased alpha 1 wave activity among cases compared to controls. Conclusion: Various pathways of glucose metabolism in hyperglycaemia may be the main reason behind Mild cognitive impairment and abnormal EEG findings.
