Hi!  I am a diabetic and do a lot of lurking on this forum.  You are getting wonderful help here!
I heard a doctor this weekend say that episodes of low blood sugar can lead to dementia or early Alzheimer's.  I had never heard of this before so I checked it out and it's true.  I know we advocate tight control but don't get so "tight" that you are having low blood sugar episodes.  Just thought you should know this.
Here is a link all about it.

Hi Sherrine, thanks for the article.  Oh boy, no one wants extreme lows (or extreme highs) for yet another reason!  I think type 1s need to be especially careful.  And sometimes type 2s have a hard time finding the right diabetes meds to keep the blood sugar regulated.  Meds can work differently in different people, and it may take a few attempts before finally getting the right combo to work.
