Symptoms of hyperglycemia

Hyperglycemia can be defined as elevated serum glucose levels. It occurs naturally as the result of infection, illness, inflammation, and psychological stress. However, it is typically more severe in patents with type 1 or type-2 diabetes.

Hyperglycemia, if untreated, can develop into ketoacidosis which is very serious and can be fatal. The earliest signs of hyperglycemia may include:
*Increased thirst *Blurred vision
*Difficulty in concentrating
*Frequent urination
*Blood glucose more than 10 mg/dL
*Weight loss
*Dry mouth or skin
*Slow healing of cuts and sores
*Excessive hunger
*Thickening of blood

Hyperglycemia is relatively common in hospitalized patients because of increased insulin demands and resistance during times of stress or illness, altered oral intake and altered medication regimens.
