According to a new study, you might be able to keep your memory sharp by living a healthy lifestyle.
Researchers in Germany claim people with lower blood sugar levels are able to remember more.
They made this discovery by splitting up 150 people into groups based on their sugar levels. Then participants were given a list of words to remember.
Their memory was tested 30 minutes later and the group with the lowest blood sugar levels scored the highest.
Researchers are saying the results prove lower blood sugar levels can lead to having a better memory. High blood sugar is often associated with diabetes. That's why doctors believe this is a wake up call for everyone.
Dr. Jeremy Soule is an Endocrinologist at United Hospital Center. He said, "It's never too late to start lifestyle measures, but this type of study would suggest it's never really too early to start them either. There's no reason to wait until one develops diabetes."
Doctors also said you're less likely to suffer from diabetes if you start eating right and exercising while you're still young.
