What is high blood sugar (hyperglycemia)?

Blood sugar level chart

If your blood sugar levels are chronically higher than normal, then this is referred to as hyperglycemia. This is a common issue for those suffering from diabetes. The condition can also affect pregnant women who have gestational diabetes and occasionally those who are severely ill (i.e. have suffered a stroke, heart attack or severe infection).

Some of the symptoms of hyperglycemia include:

  • Increased thirst

  • Hunger

  • Frequent urination

  • Headaches

  • Fatigue

  • Blurred vision

  • Issues with concentration and/or thinking

If severe hyperglycemia is left untreated the condition can lead to organ and tissue damage as the excess glucose present in the body can make it difficult for the organs and cells to function correctly. The disorder can also impair the immune system response in the healing of wounds and cuts.
