    Yes, most often it does.

    What's your connection to diabetes?

    Absolutely!!! This is the reason we are homeschooling our son. We can do his school work around his bg levels.

    Yes - both highs and lows have a physical and a mental affect!

    We haven't found that, at least with school work. She's in advanced classes and hasn't missed a beat in the past year. Her behavior at home, however, is more than questionable at times...............

    Definitely.

    Last week for example she had a spelling test with high bgs she got 5 wrong. She knew all the words. Her teacher will have her bg tested prior and if she's high lets her try it, but if she has a high amount of errors, she will have her retest.

    Low bg's she can't focus at all.

    As you can see from the posts here, Your Diabetes Will Vary from child to child.

    My daughter just did a science fair project about diabetes affecting test scores. She used her type 1 brother...very interesting outcome!!!! Diabetes absolutely affects the outcome.

    It doesn't for Jenny - unless it is an extreme situation with physical symptoms, like a very low, or a very high with ketones.
