High blood sugar may worsen spinal cord injury
Scientists have discovered yet another reason to curb sugar consumption: high levels of it in the blood may make recovery after spinal cord injury harder. Controlling blood sugar levels in patients with spinal cord injury could potentially help doctors prevent additional neurological deterioration. In mice models of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) and in a retrospective analysis of human patients, researchers found a link between hyperglycemia and poorer outcomes after spinal cord injury.
