From Maryland, USA:
What is the impact of type 1 diabetes on attention span in school based settings, especially for teen boys?
You will find a lot of detail on this web site about the effects of Hypoglycemia and Hyperglycemia. There will also be effects related to psychological issues around having diabetes at a time of extreme peer group pressure to be "normal". The latter, and the normal pubertal problems of all teenagers, are likely to be the most prevalent difficulties.
