[Is it necessary to monitor the cognitive development of a child having diabetes?].

[Article in Finnish]

Author information

  • 1TYKS, lastenklinikka.


Metabolic disorders associated with type 1 diabetes may affect brain function both momentarily during excessively low or high blood glucose levels and by causing permanent alterations. These may have an influence on the cognitive development of a child who has been diagnosed with diabetes at a very young age. Significant learning problems are rare, but their early detection and appropriate support are part of good clinical practice. Good glucose control protects also the brain.
