Signs And Symptoms Of Hyperglycemia

    hyperglycemia
  • (Hyperglycemic) Blood Sugar levels that are dangerously high. Your Health Care Team may want to be informed when these episodes occur. The default Hyperglycemic level in Best 4 Diabetes is 240 mg/dL but you and your Health Care Team should determine the correct number for you.
  • Hyperglycemia, hyperglycaemia, or high blood sugar is a condition in which an excessive amount of glucose circulates in the blood plasma.
  • An excess of glucose in the bloodstream, often associated with diabetes mellitus
  • abnormally high blood sugar usually associated with diabetes
    symptoms
  • A physical or mental feature that is regarded as indicating a condition of disease, particularly such a feature that is apparent to the patient
  • (symptom) anything that accompanies X and is regarded as an indication of X's existence
  • A sign of the existence of something, esp. of an undesirable situation
  • Symptoms is a 1974 British horror film directed by Jose Ramon Larraz. It was entered into the 1974 Cannes Film Festival. Although circulated privately through bootlegs, the original prints are missing, and was last show on British television in 1983.
  • (symptom) (medicine) any sensation or change in bodily function that is experienced by a patient and is associated with a particular disease
    signs
  • Something regarded as an indication or evidence of what is happening or going to happen
  • Used to indicate that someone or something is not present where they should be or are expected to be
  • (sign) gestural: used of the language of the deaf
  • (sign) mark with one's signature; write one's name (on); "She signed the letter and sent it off"; "Please sign here"
  • An object, quality, or event whose presence or occurrence indicates the probable presence or occurrence of something else
  • (sign) a perceptible indication of something not immediately apparent (as a visible clue that something has happened); "he showed signs of strain"; "they welcomed the signs of spring"

Transitioning From Inpatient to Outpatient Therapy in Patients with In-Hospital Hyperglycemia (DOI: 10.3810/hp.2011.10.927) (Hospital Practice)
Transition from inpatient to outpatient care for patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus is an important aspect of patient management for which there is no guidance. Intensive glucose lowering with insulin is generally favored for seriously ill hospitalized patients, but after discharge, patients often resume their prior regimens, which may include an array of oral or injected glucose-lowering agents. Factors that should be considered in this transition include goals of care/life expectancy, glycated hemoglobin at hospital admission, home medications for other illnesses and their potential for interactions with antidiabetes treatment, comorbidities, nutritional status, physical disabilities, ability to carry out self-monitoring of blood glucose, risk for hypoglycemia, contraindications to oral medications, health literacy, and financial and other resources. Traditional oral therapies that may be used after the patient leaves the hospital include sulfonylureas, ?-glucosidase inhibitors, thiazolidinediones, and metformin. ?-Glucosidase inhibitors are limited by gastrointestinal adverse events, and thiazolidinediones by fluid retention and increased risk for heart failure. Thiazolidinediones also require a long period of administration for onset glucose lowering and are not suitable for transitioning hospitalized patients who have been receiving insulin to outpatient care. Metformin is contraindicated in patients with renal, cardiac, or pulmonary insufficiency. Incretin-based therapies, glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists and dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors, have limited use in hospitals, but may be suitable for the transition to outpatient treatment. The most common adverse events with glucagon-like peptide-1 inhibitors involve the gastrointestinal system. More formal studies of treatment regimens for patients with hyperglycemia leaving the hospital are needed to guide care for this group.

Diabetes 365 - Day 22: November 8, 2007 - Hyperglycemia
Diabetes 365 - Day 22: November 8, 2007 - Hyperglycemia
This week's focus is "Numbers." A blood sugar reading that is too high is known as hyperglycemia. Symptoms of high blood sugar include intense thirst, increased urination, fatigue, and (if left untreated) weight loss. Most blood glucose meters read up to either 27.7 mmol/L (500 mg/dl) or 33.3 mmol/L (600 mg/dl). People without diabetes almost never go above 8.0 mmol/l (140 mg/dl). Many type 1 diabetics are diagnosed with blood sugars of 35-55 mmol/L (630-990 mg/dl). The symptoms that accompany blood sugar readings this high (plus the added symptoms of ketones) are extreme. The thirst, in particular, is almost unimaginable to those who haven't experienced it. I tested during break at work today and was shocked at the number. I haven't had a reading this high in over a year. Much higher and the meter wouldn't even be able to read it. I thought at first it might be a bad pump set, but it wasn't. Just a forgotten breakfast bolus (I've since turned on my pump's missed bolus alert!). There goes my days-of-good-readings streak! At readings this high the treatment of choice is a lot of insulin to bring down the blood sugar, and a lot of water to prevent dehydration.
