Health Tip: Why Diabetics Can Become Hyperglycemic

By on February 4, 2011

It’s important for diabetics to keep their blood sugar (glucose) levels stable. That means taking all medication as prescribed, and following a healthy lifestyle.

When blood glucose levels become too high, the medical condition is called hyperglycemia. The American Diabetes Association offers this list of potential causes:

  • If you’re a type 1 diabetic, getting insufficient insulin.
  • If you’re a type 2 diabetic, the insulin your body produces may not be processed effectively.
  • Overeating, or lack of exercise.
  • Having an illness or infection.
  • Being under emotional stress.
