From South Africa:

Do diabetes and blood sugar levels have an influence on mood swings? Does diabetes cause mood swings?


Yes, fluctuations in blood sugars can lead to fluctuations in your mood. The most common complaints from people is that they feel irritable when they are low, and they feel like they have no energy (almost like a flu) when they are high.
