People who have insulin-treated diabetes are at risk for severe hypoglycemia-induced brain injury. Hypoglycemia destroys neurons by depriving them of the necessary glucose to function.
Both hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia can cause brain injury, but the damage it does to the brain differs. Hypoglycemia is considered more dangerous. It can cause permanent damage in a short amount of time.
Although it’s rare, brain injuries can also cause diabetes, and symptoms of diabetes can worsen after a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A brain injury can also make diabetes more difficult to treat.
