Demographic Characteristics of Patients with Hyperglycemia in a Single Measurement
Hyperglycemia occurs as a result of stress response in patients with insulin resistance, insulin deficiency, impaired glucose metabolism and using glucocortioids. During acute stress, hyperglycemia is an adaptive response, by furnishing glucose-dependant organ substrate for energy and by protecting intravascular volume with raised serum osmolarity.
