Q: How does diabetes affect memory loss?

It seems that the longer I have high sugar level numbers, the less I seem to be able to focus, find the right word for common things, and do odd things because I can't seem to think.

Oh yes.  I have been there,  and still am even though my glucose readings are fine.  But now it`s the meds for all the other crap going on with me.  But don`t dispare.  Eat a protein breakfast or low glycemic meals and soon(about 1-3 months)you will feel better.  I did.  Exercise too.  Even light stuff will help.  God Bless.

my sis has been up all night saying strange things & doing things that are out of character for her. She was in er last night they mentioned posible stroke which she rejected immediately, they say she needs to get her levels down. Today she seems listless, tired & saying funny (not actually haha funny) but strange things that don't make since. My husband is also diabetic/cirrosis {they both have same illnesses} but my husband controls his with insulin; but he too, has bad memory loss at times. We all live together & I need to understand their illness better so I may help them both!
