Staying healthy could stave off cognitive problems among the pre-diabetic Individuals who want to stay sharp as they grow older may take an IQ test every few years to see if there has been any evidence of cognitive decline. In addition to completing the occasional IQ assessment, they should also pay close attention to their health, as poor lifestyle choices could set people up for cognitive dysfunction.

For example, it is not uncommon for individuals with impaired glucose tolerance, which precedes Type 2 diabetes, to have impaired cognitive function as well. However, as long as they are aware of their condition, individuals may be able to lessen the impact on their cognitive function, according to new research from the Human Appetite Research Unit at the University of Leeds' Institute of Psychological Sciences.

The research, which was shared during a panel discussion at the 2013 Institute of Food Technologies Annual Meeting & Expo, revealed that lifestyle changes may be able to prevent cognitive decline. Exercising more and maintaining a normal weight could slow pre-diabetic individuals' cognitive quality from sliding.

As a result, those who are concerned about their intelligence should also pay close attention to their physical health, as the two are connected.
