Risk ratio of total dementia is 1.51. Elderly patients with diabetes have sarcopenia 2-3 times more frequently than that of non-diabetic patients. In elderly patients with diabetes, sarcopenia obesity, low carbohydrate diet (LCD) can become an option for adequate nutritional treatment. American College of Physicians (ACP) presented a Guidance Statement Update in 2018, associated with the recommendation of weaker strict control.
