The experience of post-meal hyperglycaemia was associated with economic implications[sup.
The experience of post-meal hyperglycaemia was associated with a number of uncomfortable symptoms including physical impacts, such as tiredness and dizziness, emotional and cognitive impacts, sometimes leaving people with diabetes feeling demoralised, unsociable and irritable[sup.
The analyses assessed the impact of respondent-reported post-meal hyperglycaemia on healthcare resource use[sup.
Data were collected via telephone interviews and focus groups to provide insight into whether people experienced post-meal hyperglycaemia and how it affected them[sup.
The long term effect of chronic hyperglycaemia has been shown to result in myopic shifts, due to the influx of water from the aqueous humour into the crystalline lens.
It is expected that prior to treatment, the crystalline lens will swell as a result of an influx of water during long-term hyperglycaemia and lead to an increase in myopic shift.
There have been few studies regarding acute hyperglycaemia in reasonably well-controlled diabetics and they are difficult to compare mostly due to variables, which include accommodation, degrees of diabetic retinopathy, measurement techniques, and inconsistent definitions of 'good' or 'poor' diabetic control.
In conclusion, in a sample of non-obese healthy patients with impaired 1-hour hyperglycaemia during OGTT, HbA1c levels and HOMA are associated with the degree of NAFLD.

Hyperglycaemia is common among critically ill patients and places significant impact on the clinical and economic outcome.
The purpose of the study was to determine whether the extent or severity of hyperglycaemia upon onset of intensive care unit (ICU)-acquired BSI correlates with outcome in a well-defined heterogeneous population of severely ill patients.
A literature review of hyperglycaemia and neurological outcome in TBI indicates that an elevated glucose level is associated with poor outcome and higher mortality.
