Hyperglycemia is a condition that requires emergency treatment. Typically, patients with diabetes get hyperglycemia or high blood sugar. Lack of sufficient insulin in type 1 diabetes patients can lead to high blood sugar. Type 2 diabetes patients get it when their body’s insulin is ineffective.
There can be several causes of high blood sugar, including:
Skipping or forgetting to take insulin
Consuming more carbohydrates
Exercising less than normal
The dawn phenomenon (early morning surge in hormones)
If you suspect hyperglycemia, it is essential to seek treatment immediately since it can lead to life-threatening conditions. Early hyperglycemia symptoms are blood sugar higher than 180 mg/dL, increased thirst, frequent urination, headache, and fatigue. If not treated immediately, it can lead to nerve, blood vessel, and organ damage.
There are not too many differences present between hyperglycemia vs hypoglycemia. While hyperglycemia is high blood sugar (greater than 180 mg/dL), hypoglycemia is low blood sugar (less than 70 mg/dL). If not treated immediately, both of them can have severe consequences and may even lead to death.
