does fluctuation in glucose #s or levels affect your behavior or concentration ?
Yes, most often it does.
What's your connection to diabetes?
It most definately does!
Absolutely!!! This is the reason we are homeschooling our son. We can do his school work around his bg levels.
Yes. Particularly major drops.
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...............
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.
Yes, very much so.
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.

I don't know anyone real cloce to me that has diabetes or really anyone I talk to theat has diabetes, but I am very interessted in the matter and am fighting to find the cure along everyoone else by participating in walks and raising awareness. my connection is seeing all the little diabetics it breaks my heart and it is time for change we have to find a cure!
