"Some areas of the brain grow more slowly in children with Type 1 diabetes than those without, according to findings published this week in Diabetes. Researchers also found that children with the highest and most variable blood sugar levels had the slowest brain growth.
Glucose, the main form of sugar in our blood, is the brain’s primary fuel, and in Type 1 diabetes, the body loses the ability to produce a key hormone needed to regulate blood sugar levels. Type 1 diabetes treatment for children has often focused on making sure their glucose levels don’t get too low, since very low glucose can quickly put someone into a coma.

I kept thinking in the back of my mind I should probably ask a doctor about it but I figured it would just go away or my eyelid skin was just deciding to be super droopy on one side, aging skin is also awesome.

Oh I bet you sure would. Well I was just informed about this awesome little site and I am more than happy to share it with you all out there!
