According to specialists and scientific proof, the hippocampus (a region of the mind) is especially sensitive to prolonged episodes of severe hypoglycemia. And specialists said that “young kids with type 1 diabetes are at highest risk of severe hypoglycemic events, which has focused concern about the possibility of hypoglycemic insult to influence on central nervous system development”.
After assessing 41 type 1 diabetic adolescents and children -who had a history of hypoglycemia with coma or seizure- to 43 related diabetic subjects but with no history of severe hypoglycemic events, findings show that a subgroup of patients that had premature first seizure demonstrated more episodes of hypoglycemic seizure or coma compared to people who experienced a seizure in an elderly age.
The group employed different tests of memory and learning, but also behavioral and intellectual evaluations. The amazing thing is that there were not any substantial differences between the seizure and no-seizure classes on the intellectual, behavioral or memory actions.
The principal conclusion of the report is that outcomes supply “some reassurance to people treating children with type 1 diabetes with intensive therapy that seizures/coma in a young age doesn’t necessarily lead to gross behavioral or cognitive impairment”.
