Hyperglycaemia (high Blood Sugar) is sometimes misdiagnosed as Iatrogenic

It has been reported that some patients have been misdiagnosed with Iatrogenic , 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.

Always consult your doctor or health professional, and do not self diagnose.

Symptoms can include:

Elevated blood sugar, fatigue, weight loss, slow healing cuts, increased thirst and/or hunger, blurred vision, headache, frequent urination

Symptoms are a guideline only and may apply to either the diagnosis or the reported misdiagnosis, or both. Consult your specialist for further information.
