Cognitive Function and Diabetes Self-Management

Cognitive Training for Diabetes Self-Management: Diabetes self-management, essential to good glycemic control, requires both the assimilation of knowledge regarding a complex disease and self-management activities such as glucose self-monitoring and medication management. The goal of this project is to test the Memory, Attention, and Problem-Solving Skills for Persons with Diabetes (MAPSS-DM) intervention, and examine patterns of glucose variability using continuous glucose monitors (CGMS).

Mild Cognitive Impairment and Type 2 Diabetes: In this project we are using a mixed-methods design to examine factors that predict self-management and clinical outcomes in Latinx with type 2 diabetes and mild cognitive impairment. We are using a dataset from the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos as well as semi-structured interviews and observations of daily self-management with Latinx adults with type 2 diabetes.

Dementia and Glucose Variability in Latinx adults with type 2 diabetes: The overall objectives in this project are to examine: (1) the risks for dementia related to glucose variability and (2) factors related to health disparities and cognitive function in a diverse Latinx population. We are using a dataset of medical records from a large multisite clinic in Central Texas.
