What Is The Difference Between Hyperglycemia And Diabetes
Prediabetes: Hyperglycemia is caused by either not having enough Insulin to carry glucose into your cells (type i) or your cells being insensitive to Insulin (type ii). Prediabetes is a precursor to type ii diabetes that can be reversed with early, aggressive intervention, including regular glucose checks, diet and exercise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If i have hyperglycemia & HbA1c (type 2 diabetes) can I make desserts with canderel or other artificial sweetener
Diabetes: Yes, you can make desserts with those artificial sweeteners. The key thing with diabetes is to avoid overindulgence. You can negate the benefits of using such sweeteners if you eat too much of them. Make sure to keep your portion sizes down and pay back any excess via regular cardiovascular exercises, like walking, swimming, zumba etc., or what ever exercise you enjoy. ...Read more
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
Compensation: Hyperglycemia just means that the blood sugar is high. If you have taken enough Insulin so that there is active metabolism going on, the sugar will eventually be noprmalized - even though you may have to raise the dose of Insulin to do this. If the Insulin is totally inadequate, the body begins to burn fat instead of sugar. The fat leads to ketones and then acidosis as everything gets worse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can diabetes start as hypoglycaemia and become hyperglycaemia at a later time? Does it typically start this way?
No: Hypoglycemia as a manifestation of undiagnosed diabetes is not a generally recognized feature. You may consult this site for information on this topic. http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/symptoms/ For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Can l request an antibody test for diabetes? I have hyperglycaemia ,very strong symptoms ie: thirst & frequent urination. Have Graves D. Fit & healthy
Different test: An antibody test is not the way to make a diagnosis of diabetes. It can be done by testing blood levels of glucose in fasting state, or if needed by a glucose tolerance test. An alternative test is for A1c. It would be prudent to consult your doctor for the diagnosis and if have diabetes for the management of the disease. Wish you good health! ...Read more
Hba1c=6,6% diagnosis diabetes. metformine for 6m hba1c=6,2%.So I tested glycemia every 2 h for 2days,never hyperglycaemia:healing or wrong diagnosis?
Several points.: Glycemia test while on diabetic medication isnt entirely valid. The AiC of 6.6% with treatment makes it very UNlikely to NOT be a diabetic (its very high for normal; pretty good for diabetic WITH TREATMENT). At really good levels, getting slightly better and moving into the category of not diabetic , impaired glycemic control occurs, but I think diabetic is more accurate. ...Read more
Massive differences: Neuropathy is nerve damage.It often causes unpredictable pain or symptoms like numbness, weird sensations (paresthesias), hyperalgesia (very severe pain) or allodynia (pain from normally non-painful stimuli).Angiopathy is disease of the blood vessels that can cause leakage, blockage, or breakage of vessels.Hyperglycemia means "blood sugar" as in diabetes.It can lead to the other 2 problems. ...Read more
