Too much blood sugar is bad for the brain, according to a research team from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre. In this study, adults with poorly controlled type 2 diabetes had significantly higher levels of two proteins –known as sVCAM and sICAM – that impair brain function and promote brain cell death.
The scientists note that adults with diabetes that keep blood sugar under wraps may be doing a favor for their brains –significantly reducing their risk of Alzheimer’s, depression and cognitive decline.
