Since diabetes mellitus affects every organic system, it affects gastrointestinal tract as well. The precise extent of digestive disorders associated with diabetes mellitus is unknown. Few mechanisms may lead to these manifestations including autonomic neuropathy, diabetic microangiopathy, poor glycemic regulation, altered production of glucagon and insulin, and increased susceptibility to gastrointestinal infections.

Low-Carbohydrate Weight-Loss Diets Effects on Cognition and Mood

To examine how a low-carbohydrate diet affects cognitive performance, women participated in one of two weight-loss diet regimens. Participants self-selected a low-carbohydrate (n = 9) or a reduced-calorie balanced diet similar to that recommended by the American Dietetic Association (ADA diet) (n = 10). Seventy-two hours before beginning their diets and then 48 h, 1, 2, and 3 weeks after starting, participants completed a battery of cognitive tasks assessing visuospatial memory, vigilance attention, memory span, a food-related paired-associates a food Stroop, and the Profile of Moods Scale (POMS) to assess subjective mood. Results showed that during complete withdrawal of dietary carbohydrate, low carbohydrate dieters performed worse on memory-based tasks than ADA dieters.
