Research, led by Deborah A. Levine, M.D., M.P.H., Professor of Medicine and Neurology at the University of Michigan Medical School, analyzed data from the STROKE COG study, which combined and analyzed information from four long-term studies spanning four decades. The researchers suggest that targeting post-stroke hyperglycemia, regardless of diabetes status, may be a potential treatment approach to protect cognitive function after a stroke. However, further clinical research is needed to evaluate the effectiveness of tight glycemic control in reducing cognitive decline and dementia among stroke survivors.
