From Chicago, Illinois, USA:

When looking through the questions and answers related to ADHD and type 1 diabetes, I see responses saying that there is no relationship between the two. But, have there been any studies that document the percentage of children with type 1 diabetes diagnosed with ADHD as compared to the general population?


Few or none except for the large prospective study from Professor Eugen Schoenle at Zurich Kinderspital which relates all kinds of intellectual problems with high sugars and increasing with higher A1c levels versus no such relationship with hypoglycemia - even unconscious reactions or seizures.
