AD concomitant with hyperglycemia is commonly observed during clinical work, and it was known that AD and disorder of glucose metabolism are related.However, the factor of glucose level in AD patients have not yet been taken into consideration in the past studies, which might be of clinical significance in learning the AD progression. In this work, DKI is used to probe the likely effects of elevated glucose level in the white matter microstructure of AD patients.
