hyperglycaemia

Excessive levels of glucose in the blood. This is a feature of untreated or undertreated DIABETES MELLITUS.

hyperglycaemia

see GLYCOSURIA.

hyperglycaemia

abnormally high level of blood glucose usually indicative of diabetes mellitus. See also blood glucose, diabetes, insulin.

hyperglycaemia

blood glucose levels higher than the upper limit of the normal range; normal random blood glucose (RBG) = <10 mmol/L; normal fasting blood glucose (FBG) = 2.9-5.9 mmol/L; patients with FBG = 5.9-6.7 mmol/L are borderline diabetics, requiring a glucose tolerance test to exclude diabetes mellitus; two consecutive FBGs = >6.7 mmol/L diagnose diabetes mellitus; persistent hyperglycaemia requires emergency treatment with insulin therapy to prevent ketoacidosis and coma

hy·per·gly·ce·mi·a

(hī'pĕr-glī-sē'mē-ă)
Abnormally high concentration of glucose in the circulating blood, seen in diabetes mellitus.
Synonym(s): hyperglycaemia.
[hyper- + G. glykys, sweet, + haima, blood]

Therapy and outcome of treatment for hyperglycaemic crisis is related to the presence of hyperosmolality and ketoacidosis.
In a 1-week trial in 13 patients, liraglutide treatment improved all parameters in standard beta-cell function tests (IVGTT, arginine stimulation, and hyperglycaemic clamp) and, in a single-dose trial in 10 patients, beta-cell sensitivity to glucose was restored (ISR in response to graded glucose infusion).
This means that the product can significantly reduce the need for frequent intermittent sampling and can potentially identify early hypoglycemic and hyperglycaemic excursions, the company noted.
Previous studies have shown that injecting crustacean hyperglycaemic hormone (CHH) into crabs boosts blood sugar levels, suggesting that it is roughly analogous to insulin in humans, triggering the breakdown of glycogen into glucose to be used as fuel when required.
Hospital admissions, the largest single item of diabetes expenditure, are often precipitated by hyperglycaemic emergencies.
