diabetes-related changes in the CNS and the changes seen commonly with age is remarkable. On the other hand, tissues with high replicative capacity such as intestinal epithelium and bone marrow do not demonstrate a high level of concordance between the changes in diabetes and those seen with age (see Table 56.2). These tissues do not appear to undergo premature aging in diabetes. It is likely that accelerated aging in diabetes is tissue-specific, and it may be limited to tissues without a high capacity of replication.
