Good article. I appreciate

Good article. I appreciate that the author was cautioned the readers of applying the findings of one study too generally, but it is definitely something that needs have more research. What comes to mind for me is how individuals with diabetes will also struggle with mood swings that are related to blood sugars and insulin instability. I have seen it with my fathers over the past few decades and it was magnified when he was hospitalized and unable to control his food and insulin (the doctors and nurses had complete autonomy). His blood sugar levels were uncontrollable (until they finally allowed him to manage his own). And it was the first time he was aware of how his blood sugar and insulin levels effected his moods. He struggled with anxiety that bordered on panic, and he became depressed. I am sure there were other factors that also contributed to these conditions manifesting, but he is not the only diabetic who has had issues with mood swings, impulsivity, aggressive thoughts and behaviours.
