Does Acute Hyperglycemia Affect Nerve Function
Yes: The duration and severity of hyperglycemic episodes are major risk factors for the development of diabetic neuropathy. The process for this is not entirely well understood likely because there are multiple effects of high blood sugar on disrupting nerve cell function and tipping the balance from cell repair to nerve cell death. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon).

For those patients they should be seeing their endocrinologist or primary care doctor. ...Read more

Damaged kidney then leaks protein (albumin) into urine and you get albuminuria.

May be quite varied!: Hypoglycemia: shakiness, sweating, hunger, palpitations. If severe: confusion, lethargy, seizure, or coma could occur. Hyperglycemia: no symptoms if mild (that's what's so dangerous over long periods of time). If severe: frequent urination, ravenous thirst. If not addressed over long periods of time, damage to kidneys, nerves, eyes, and blood vessels can result. ...Read more
Glucose value: Normal blood glucose is in the neighborhood of 100 mg/dl. When it is higher one is hyperglycemic. When it is lower one is hypoglycemic. A blood sugar of 350 is clearly worse than one of 150 and will have more symptoms of thirstiness, frequent urination, fatigue and blurred vision. Same for hypoglycemia. 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. If ur FBS is repeatedly between 100-126, you are in a state known as 'impaired glucose tolerance'. If ur FBS > 126, you are diabetic, which is by far the cause of hyperglycemia. Hypoglycemia usually is caused by too much Insulin in blood, or too strong rx of diabetes. ...Read more
