    The LCHF diet will really help to lower and stabilize blood sugar levels. His very high levels could well be causing considerable damage throughout the body. Here's how you do it. It's not difficult and is very healthy for everyone.

    I've only just come across this thread so it's a bit late in the day...but for what it's worth when my blood sugar gets into double figures (over about 12) I get irritatingly confused. Even very simple tasks like sorting papers into different piles can be very challenging and (it goes without saying) I get crushingly tired.
    Being quite new to the forum, until recently I kind of thought i might be the only one who gets the confusion thing.
