Scott Turner began enrolling people with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease into a nationwide study last year, he expected to find only a handful of participants with undiagnosed glucose intolerance, as all the patients were already under a doctor’s care and those with known diabetes were excluded. But Turner says he was «shocked» by how many study participants were found to have pre-diabetes — a finding that is triggering important questions.
