A friend in another group presented these slides today. She attended a meeting and a Dr Metzger presented them at a FFL conference last weekend. In the link below, the top image shows three brain cells…the first image is a brain cell during low blood sugar, the 2nd is a brain cell during normal blood sugar, and the 3rd is a brain cell during high blood sugar. I found it shocking to see the difference with the high BG! The bottom image is a chart showing IQ in relation to A1c. Very interesting!I don't know how many individuals are represented by the diagram. If there were many subjects with different initial A1c's and IQ's, the study would be more conclusive. It does raise some important speculation. Maybe Dr. Metzger will do more work on this topic.
