What is hyperglycemia?

Hyperglycemia is high blood glucose (sugar). This is when the body doesn’t have enough insulin or doesn’t properly use insulin. Symptoms can include high levels of sugar in a person’s urine, frequent urination and an increase in thirst. The opposite of hyperglycemia is hypoglycemia, which is abnormally low blood glucose levels—also known as insulin reaction or insulin shock. Symptoms can include shaking, nervousness, sweating, lightheadedness, seizures and more.
