What is it about?
The aim of this study is to determine the association of serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and vitamin D levels with cognition status in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). We find that low serum IGF-1 and 25(OH)D levels may separately predict poor cognitive performance in patients with diabetes.
