A standard 1H PRESS sequence, with a TE of 68 ms, acquired at 3T is applied to investigate differences in cerebral glucose concentrations in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM ) compared with controls with normal glucose metabolism. Subjects with T2DM (n=38) display an increased cerebral glucose level compared to controls (n=38). These levels are also associated with two blood glucose measures, fasting blood glucose (FBG) and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c).
