Abstract BACKGROUND: Few prospective studies have assessed diabetes mellitus as a risk factor for incident Alzheimer disease (AD) and decline in cognitive function. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association of diabetes mellitus with risk of AD and change in different cognitive systems. DESIGN: Longitudinal cohort study. PARTICIPANTS: For up to 9 years, 824 older (those >55 years) Catholic nuns, priests, and brothers underwent detailed annual clinical evaluations. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Clinically diagnosed AD and change in global and specific measures of cognitive function. RESULTS: Diabetes mellitus was present in 127 (15.4\%) of the participants. During a mean of 5.5 years of observation, 151 persons developed AD. In a proportional hazards model adjusted for age, sex, and educational level, those with diabetes mellitus had a 65\% increase in the risk of developing AD compared with those without diabetes mellitus (hazard ratio, 1.65; 95\% confidence interval, 1.10-2.47). In random effects models, diabetes mellitus was associated with lower levels of global cognition, episodic memory, semantic memory, working memory, and visuospatial ability at baseline. Diabetes mellitus was associated with a 44\% greater rate of decline in perceptual speed (P =.02), but not in other cognitive systems. CONCLUSIONS: Diabetes mellitus may be associated with an increased risk of developing AD and may affect cognitive systems differentially.
