Hyperglycemia - High a level of glucose in the blood; a sign that diabetes is out of control. Many things can cause hyperglycemia. It occurs when the body does not have enough insulin or cannot use the insulin it does have to turn glucose into energy. Signs of hyperglycemia are great thirst, a dry mouth, and a need to urinate often. For people with insulin-dependent diabetes, hyperglycemia may lead to diabetic ketoacidosis.

Hyperosmolar Coma -A coma (loss of consciousness) related to high levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood and requiring emergency treatment. A person with this condition is usually older and weak from loss of body fluids and weight. The person may or may not have a previous history of diabetes. Ketones (acids) are not present in the urine.

ALL DISEASES CAN BE CURED, ONLY THING IS, WE ARE STILL INCAPABLE TO FIND THE CORRECT METHOD TO CURE. IF WE ARE UNABLE TO CURE DISEASES, THEN OUR BASIC CONCEPT OF CAUSE OF DISEASES IF WRONG. ONCE OUR CONCEPT OF CAUSE OF DISEASE IS CORRECT WE AUTOMATICALLY GET THE WAYS TO CURE. THINK DEEPLY TO UNDERSTAND THESE WORDS.
