Antioxidants may alleviate diabetic brain fog, study finds

In a recent study presented at the Society for Endocrinology conference, researchers from Glasgow, Scotland used a mouse model to investigate whether antioxidants can mitigate brain fog associated with diabetes.
Along with her colleagues at the University of Dundee in Scotland, Dr. McNeilly used insulin implants to induce type 1 diabetes in 8 male mice. The mice were then divided into three groups:
l 3 mice with type 1 diabetes and recurring hypoglycaemia
l 3 mice with type 1 diabetes and recurring hypoglycaemia that were given the antioxidant sulforaphane
l 3 mice with type 1 diabetes that were the control group
The researchers found that the three mice who were given sulforaphane performed better on tasks involving novel object recognition. In addition, levels of free radicals in the brain were lower. Further research on the activation of antioxidant pathways is required, however, this research indicate that boosting the body’s antioxidative system may improve brain health for diabetic patients who experience recurring episodes of hypoglycaemia.
