Hyperglycemia is the medical term referred when the glucose(sugar) level in one’s body rises high to a considerable level temporarily. High blood sugar is known as the hyperglycemia. The low blood sugar in one’s body is called hypoglycemia.
The food we eat has glucose contents. When we eat food, the food is digested and the glucose is released from the food into the blood cells. These glucose contents is to be distributed to each and every cell of the body to produce energy. To transport the glucose to every part of the body, it requires a carrier to carry it to the specified destination. Insulin, a hormone released by the pancreas helps in transporting the glucose contents to every cell of the body. The insulin is released by the pancreas depending upon the level of glucose(sugar) content in the blood.
The persons suffering from diabetes, faces the problem of high blood sugar. The pancreas stop producing insulin and thus the insulin content is not enough to transport the glucose to different parts of the body. So the glucose(sugar) remains in the blood and result in high blood sugar in the body.
Being aware of the symptoms of high blood sugar would help in staying alert from the consequences. Some of which would be:-
- Frequent urination

Hyperglycemia thus can cause serious issues involving heart diseases and strokes, kidney diseases, and vision problems.
