Question:

From Marthon, Florida, USA:

Can high blood sugar affect the brain in terms of judgment and impaired thought processes?

Answer:

Yes, it is known that cognitive functions are adversely affected by high glucose, although not as definitively as by low glucose concentrations. This has implications for school, etc.
