Are your sugars a little higher than normal, but not high enough to classify you as Diabetes or Prediabetes. A study in which brain scans were performed on 249 people at age 60 and repeated at 64 years old, discovered that those with blood sugars at the high end of normal were more likely to experience shrinkage in the amygdala and hippocampas areas associated with aging and dementia. A previous study highlighted teenager performance in school, and noted those with insulin resistance had poorer performance in school. Perhaps, we need to redefine our definition of diabetes and prediabetes to even lower levels. With about one third of our population classified and Diabetic and Prediabetic, lowering the threshold for diagnosis could possibly include more than half of our population.
