DIABETICS INCREASED RISK OF PARKINSON'S DISEASE

Diabetes Care [2011] Mar 4 [Epub ahead of print] (Xu Q, Park Y, Huang X, Hollenbeck A, Blair A, Schatzkin A, Chen H.) Complete abstract

Researcher's have found that there is an increased risk of Parkinson's Disease amongst diabetics. In a study involving over a quarter of a million people the risk of Parkinson's Disease amongst diabetics was increased by 40%. Further analysis showed that the increased risk was largely limited to people who had diabetes for more than 10 years at the time of the survey. In those people the risk of developing Parkinson's Disease was increased even more, by 75%. What the researchers have not explained is why this likelihood occurs. The biochemistry of diabetes and Parkinson's Disease are quite distinct. However, both diabetes and Parkinson's Disease increase in prevalence with age.
