People with higher blood sugar levels may be more likely to have memory problems. That's according to a new study of older adults who did not have diabetes.  German researchers found those with high blood sugar levels had lower scores on memory tests.

People in the study with higher blood sugar levels also had less volume in the area of the brain that's important for memory.
Some studies show type 2 diabetes may increase the risk for dementia, including Alzheimer's Disease.

 Researchers say the findings suggest lowering blood sugar could be a way to prevent memory problems, even in people with normal blood sugar.
