The Hidden Cause behind Your Elderly Loved One’s Mood Swings

????????????????????????????????????????Your loved one’s mood swings are common among people with Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes, especially if the mood swings are accompanied by changes in sleep patterns, appetite, lethargy, low self-esteem, and depression.  Rapid changes in blood sugar levels cause temporary mood swings which go away when glucose levels return to the target range.  Changes in one’s mood may also be attributed to other factors, such as stress related to managing diabetes.  If your loved one has depression, managing diabetes will become that much more difficult for him or her, and it snowballs into health complications and overall poorer outcomes.
