Some people think that suffering from glucose lows is better than having diabetes with high levels of sugar; however, both conditions involve complications and care. Today we will deal with the amnesia that can occur when you have hypoglycemia.

Memory loss due to diabetes
Although memory loss tends to be more frequent as we get older, this problem can be seen ahead of time due to causes such as diabetes caused by too high or low blood glucose levels.

What happens with memory when you have hypoglycemia?
It is likely that you will have trouble remembering words and retaining names, but it is also true that it is not necessarily a sign of a long-term problem, in many cases raising sugar levels by more than 4 mmol makes it all go back to normal.

But, if memory problems occur at other times and this significantly affects your life, talk to your doctor.

Diabetes can increase the risk of developing long-term memory problems if blood glucose levels are not controlled. For example, having high levels for a long time of years and without treatment can damage the neurological system, which can increase the risk of dementia.

Studies ensure that good control of diabetes can help prevent memory problems from developing or progressing.

Symptoms of memory loss
• Forget what you just did
• Impossibility to remember an important event in your life
• Forget the places where you keep things in your house
• Forgetting the names of people nearby
• When some of these symptoms occur more frequently than normal it is necessary to seek medical help.

What to do?

While you are diagnosed, you can continue with your life applying some tricks that will help you to take the situation until you start an appropriate treatment.
• Make to-do lists
• Always keep things in the same place
• Keep an updated calendar
• Use alarms to remind you to take pills, injections, or have blood tests
