What Are the Symptoms of
Hyperglycemia in Diabetes?
If you have diabetes, it is important to know the early signs of hyperglycemia. If hyperglycemia is left untreated, it may develop into ketoacidosis (if you have type 1 diabetes) or HHNS
(if you have type 2 diabetes), both of which are serious emergencies.
Early signs of hyperglycemia in diabetes include:
Fatigue (weak, tired feeling)
Blood sugar more than 180 mg/dL
Prolonged hyperglycemia in diabetes may result in:
Vaginal and skin infections
Slow-healing cuts and sores
Nerve damage causing painful cold or insensitive feet, loss of hair on the lower extremities, and/or erectile dysfunction
Stomach and intestinal problems such as chronic constipation or diarrhea
