What are the long-term effects of consistently low blood sugars? What are the effects of high blood sugars?


For information on the effects of low blood sugars, see Hypoglycaemia and Cognitive Function. For information about high blood sugars, see Relationships between hyperglycemia and cognitive performance among adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and Acute hyperglycaemia impairs cognitive function in children with IDDM. Uncontrolled diabetes, characterized by many high blood sugars often leads to Complications.
