It has been reported that some patients have been misdiagnosed with Diabetes Type 1, when in fact the correct diagnosis in their specific case was Hyperglycaemia (high Blood Sugar).
Untreated hyperglycaemia for prolonged periods can lead to serious health conditions including damage to vital organs, heart problems, heart attacks, as well as vision issues. Treatments include medication and insulin intake. Diagnosis is made by measuring the level of sugar in the blood. The cause of the hyperglycaemia must also be determined.
