The neurological consequences of diabetes mellitus have recently been receiving greater attention in both clinical and experimental settings. The deleterious effect of hyperglycemia and altered oxidative substrate availability on the diabetic brain is the subject of many studies. The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of the altered metabolic environment, namely, hyperglycemia and hyperketonemia, on glucose metabolism in the diabetic brain. More specifically, we examined the… CONTINUE READING
