Here's the highlights:


“Higher normal” blood glucose levels contribute to neurodegenerative processes.

Effects progressively increase from “high normal”, impaired fasting glucose to T2D.

Neurodegeneration related to glucose metabolism impairs cognitive function.

The same risk factors are implicated across the glucose impairment continuum.

Bottom line: sugar is bad for our brains.

And this is very interesting because most people report ketogenic diets are wonderful for mental clarity.
