Age-Related Problems Develop Earlier With Diabetes
 

Conditions such as incontinence, falls, and pain that are usually associated with getting older occur at younger ages in people with diabetes, according to a new study in the Journal of General Internal Medicine. Researchers found that diabetic adults between ages 51 and 70 had nearly double the odds of developing age-related conditions compared with those of the same age who didn’t have diabetes. Lead author Christine Cigolle, MD, MPH, said in a press release: “Because diabetes affects multiple organ systems, it has the potential to contribute significantly to the development of a number of issues that we associate with aging.” Dr. Cigolle added that diabetics should begin screening for these problems at younger ages.
