Hyperglycemic episodes can result in mental function and mood impairment

Researchers have discovered that hyperglycemic episodes in people with type 2 diabetes result in a decline in mental function and in mood. It was shown that during such an episode, working memory, information processing and attention were all negatively affected. Likewise, patients become more agitated, anxious, lethargic and tired during a hyperglycemic episode.
