Abstract

This study was undertaken to compare the memory profile of 30-55 years old men with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus with age matched controls. It included 100 cases and 100 controls. Memory score was calculated for all patients in both the groups using PGI Memory Scale.Average PGIMS score in diabetic group was 80.76±8.75 and it was 87.68±7.39 in control group. The unpaired t-test was used to compare the results between cases and controls and it showed statistically significant better memory scoring in control (non-diabetic) group. When HbA1c was compared with PGIMS score, correlation coefficient was -0.253 suggesting trend of higher HbA1c had poor memory scoring. This study showed mild cognitive impairment in diabetic when compared to age matched controls.
