Diabetic with pump insulin, foot surgery, stents in heart, MRI showed small vessels. Any treatment?

I am a diabetic with pump insuslin. For the past 2 years, I've been doing things that might indicate something wrong with my brain. Also, had several surgeries on my foot. Stents (7) in my heart. I had a MRI and showed up some small vessels. Could this be the problem I'm having with my forgetfullness and I tremble 1-2 times a day.

Hello,

This is one of the microvascular complication of diabetes. This is infarction of the brain due to small vessel ischemia. This causes atrophy of the brain and causes dementia.
