In terms of job, the highest percentage was related to free employment with 653 people (35.2). In this study, 258 (13.9) of those with diabetes also had Alzheimer's disease. And a statistically significant relationship was found between jobs with those with Alzheimer's disease (0.003). There was a significant relationship between diabetes and those with Alzheimer's disease (p = 0.006). But there was no significant relationship between diabetes and those with a history of cardiovascular disease (p = 0.09). Conclusion: In this study, there was a significant relationship between diabetes and those with Alzheimer's disease. Therefore, this study showed the risk of Alzheimer's disease in diabetic patients in the three counties. Therefore, follow-up is needed to prevent diabetes.
