Hi Ellen, it seems that it is true that Uncle Steve's mom may have dementia, we are still exploring options  mom has dementia  and it is still too early to tell how far along it is. I will keep you posted on twitter.  I do understand that there is a connection between dementia and diabetes, she has a high blood sugar.

I read about an Australian study that indicated a link between regular use of statins and memory loss/dementia. Given that virtually all diabetics are told to take statins as a preventative measure against heart problems, that might be one link between diabetes and memory loss in old age.
