From Calgary, Alberta, Canada:

Can hyperglycemia occur in people who have not been diagnosed with diabetes?


Yes, hyperglycemia can occur in people who do not have diabetes. Stress and illness can do this. Sometimes, after a huge glucose load, the blood glucose will rise to hyperglycemic levels for a brief time. Non fasting or post prandial hyperglycemia is getting a lot of press, and the American Diabetes Association will host a conference on it next year. Postprandial hyperglycemia seems to be a precursor of diabetes in many people, especially those who are to develop type 2.
