What Is The Difference Between Hyperglycemia And Diabetes
Disease vs. symptom: Diabetes is a metabolic disease caused by not producing enough Insulin or developing Insulin resistance. Glycosuria means the presence of glucose in the urine, which occurs either when the glucose levels in the blood are too high (as in diabetes) or when glucose transport mechanism in kidney tubules is congenitally defective(rare condition). ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unrelated conditions: Diabetes mellitus (dm) is a condition of excessively high sugars which can cause one to void large amounts of urine frequently. Type 1 dm is caused by pancreatic failure so Insulin is required. Type 2 dm is resistance to Insulin or inefficient use. Diabetes insipidus is voiding large amounts of urine frequently due to either kidney or brain disorder, both unrelated to sugar & insulin. ...Read more
2 different diseases: Diabetes is a disorder where your blood sugar runs high. Addison's disease is a disease at the adrenal gland where it fails to produce its hormones. They have nothing to do with each other except there is a condition called polyglandular syndrome where you can get both diabetes and addison's disease at the same time. ...Read more
No direct one: Diabetes in and of itself doesn't cause any change in hemoglobin. There is, however, glycohemoglobin, or hemoglobin A1c that is a direct measure of one's glucose control. That has directly to do with diabetes. Plain hemoglobin is usually affected in patients with kidney failure as their erythropoetin production fails. Also, anemia of chronic disease given many comorbidities with dm is another one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Completely different: Glucose is a basic sugar with calories to provide energy. Sorbitol is a non-absorbable sugar alcohol which is used to sweeten foods which are often labeled, sugar free. It causes bloating and diarrhea in some. Sugar free foods are not calorie free and often contain more fat to make them taste better. ...Read more
Insulin Insensitivty: Obesity(fat) requires massive amounts of Insulin from the pancreas to store "the product". Additionally, the pancreas becomes depleted of Insulin or "the product" acts as its' own "production facility" decreasing its' sensitivity for Insulin to act. Either way diabetes then becomes more difficult to treat leading to the term a "brittle" diabetic with all the compiications thereof including death. ...Read more
One is med induced : Reactive hypoglycemia means blood sugars drop after eating a high carb meal due to an exaggerated response by the pancreas. People with diabetes get hypoglycemic when their carb intake does not match their med intake or when they expend more calories than they usually do and take the same amount if Insulin or other meds. ...Read more
