Patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) show brain tissue changes in mood and cognitive control sites, functions that are deficient in the condition. However, the nature and extent of brain injury in T2DM, and their progression with time along with functional deficits are unclear. Using diffusion tensor imaging based MD procedures, we showed wide-spread chronic tissue changes in T2DM subjects and their continued progression after 6 months follow-up in areas involve in mood and cognitive regulatory functions. These findings may have resulted from underlying metabolic dysfunction associated with the condition.
