Hyperglycaemic presentations in Type II diabetes

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Background: Hyperosmolar Hyperglycaemic State (HHS)is a syndrome that occurs in Type II diabetes and is comparable to Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) seen in Type I diabetes. For a GP working in a rural Emergency Department recognition of HSS is important in order to guide management

Objectives: This article will focus on hyperglycaemic states in Type II Diabetes. We will outline the reasons for the biochemical derangements in both and HSS and DKA, concentrating on the recognition and management of HHS.

Discussion: An understanding of the pathophysiology driving HHS helps in understanding clinical presentation and treatment. HHS has a high mortality rate and having access to clinical guidelines from a referring hospital simplifies early management strategies.
