High blood sugar not only increases the risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome, it can affect our memory too.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 28, 2013
A new report and video from Health News Wires titled Top Three Reasons Why High Blood Sugar Affects Memory reveals important reasons why blood sugar affects memory.
Lower blood sugar levels supports memory health while high blood sugar levels may cause cognitive issues in those with glucose levels considered on the high end of normal/safe blood sugar levels.
People with low blood sugar levels consistently demonstrate significantly better recall and memory than people with high levels of blood glucose. People with low blood glucose levels also demonstrated to constantly have a larger hippocampus than people with higher blood sugar.
Scientists believe increased blood sugar levels may damage the vessels bringing blood to the brain, leading to less nutrients, oxygen and blood being delivered to the brain.
When blood sugar levels rise, so does the likelihood of insulin resistance. Insulin resistance increases the levels of blood sugar and insulin in the blood, but also prevents the body and brain from recognizing the increase; this leads to numerous health issues including diabetes, weight gain, heart disease - and now, potential memory problems.
