Yes, diabetes does affect the brain. There have been many studies done to support this fact. Diabetes can cause blood vessels to become less responsive to different parts of the brain. When performing tasks you need increased blood flow to the brain to make these things happen. That is why it is important to make sure your levels are in check.
