Do You Have Hyperglycemia Or Hypoglycemia If You Have Diabetes
Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin. Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...Read more

The lower the value the more the sweats, tremulousness, irritability and mental cloudiness. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
One 2 hi, one 2 low: If u fast for 8 hours (FBS) blood sugar should be between 70 and 100. Hypo=low, hyper=high, glyc=sugar, emia=in the blood.
