Insulin resistance possible risk factor for cognitive impairment in fibromialgic patients.

By Antonietta Fava, et al.

Abstract:

To evaluate glucose metabolism and/or insulin resistance (IR) in 96 patients with Fibromyalgia (FM), associated or not to cognitive impairment. We investigated glucose metabolism in 96 FM patients.

Enrolled patients were divided into two groups: 48 patients with memory deficit (group A) and 48 without memory deficit (control group). We evaluated glucose and insulin levels after a 2  h-Oral-Glucose-Tolerance-Test (2  h-OGTT) and insulin resistance (IR) by the homeostasis model assessment formula (HOMA).

  • Body Mass Index (BMI), waist-to-hip-ratio (WHR), anxiety level, fasting plasma insulin and Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory agents use were higher in patients with FM with memory impairment;

  • while age, sex, waist circumference, education level, fasting plasma glucose, glycate hemoglobin, triglycerides, blood lipid profile, C- Reactivity-Protein (CRP), blood pressure and smoking habits were similar in both groups.

  • Following OGTT the prevalence of glucose metabolism abnormalities was significantly higher in group A.

  • IR was present in 79% patients, of whom 23% had also impaired glucose tolerance, 4% newly diagnosed diabetes mellitus and 52% IR only.

  • Obesity and overweight prevailed in group A. IR, but not BMI or WHR was associated to an increased risk of memory impairment (OR = 2,6; 95% CI: 1,22-3,7).

The results of this study suggest that IR may represent a risk factor for memory impairment in fibromialgic patients.
