<<...but no data on highs and mental clarity lose.>>

There is data under medical literature related to DKA. The higher the BG,
the thought processes become sluggish, oxygen release to cells is impaired,
and if ketones and dehydration are present, cognitive function is lowered
even more.
The brain needs the proper mix of glucose and oxygen available, or it will
be irritable and sluggish.
