From Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, USA:

I have a student who is 14 years old and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 11. I know that going through puberty can cause levels blood sugar levels to be unstable. Can this also cause a decrease in ability to concentrate and complete a task?


Yes, there is growing evidence that high (as well as low) blood sugars can affect concentration.
