From Manchester, England:

I would like to know if there is any link between sugar levels and memory. I have trouble spelling, which I never had before being diagnosed a year ago.


To my knowledge diabetes does not impair memory per se. However, if your blood glucose levels are running low or high at the time you are attempting to spell, well, that could be a problem.

Do your very best to keep your blood sugar levels stable and keep studying your spelling!
