Background & aim: Diabetes is a common disease characterized by high hyperglycemia. One of the most common complications of this disease is central neuropathy. Hyperglycemia causes adverse effects on cognitive functions such as information processing speed, memory and learning. The purpose of this study was to determine and compare short-term memory function in type 1 diabetic patients and healthy controls.
 
Methods: The present study was a descriptive causal-comparative study which was performed to compare the short-term memory function in type 1 diabetic patients and healthy individuals in Mazandaran diabetes center. The statistical population of the study was 112 people, 58 of whom were type 1 diabetes and 54 healthy people. The demographic questionnaire was used for data collection (age, sex, duration of illness, body mass index, etc) and computer memory test. Data were analyzed by SPSS 16 software. The collected data were analyzed using t-test.
 
Results: The results of the present study revealed that type 1 diabetic patients had lower memory performance than healthy subjects, so that the difference between the healthy and type 1 diabetes groups in the component of reading alphabet at the level of p<0.05 was significantly lower in the type 1 diabetic patients than in the type 1 diabetic patients. Healthy individuals were less and the components of memory retention time, word retention time, word retention time, short term memory capacity and information processing speed in short term memory were significantly higher than those in type 1 diabetic patients (p<0.001).
 
Conclusion: Based on the findings of the present study, increased blood sugar can impair memory function in type 1 diabetic patients, so that short-term memory function in type 1 diabetic patients was significantly different from healthy subjects and diabetic patients. Type 1 had lower memory performance than healthy controls.
