Unfortunately, women with PCOS often develop type 2 diabetes
. Linked to this latter condition is a dangerous disorder called hyperglycemia, which is caused by abnormally high blood glucose levels. Even if a person is treating diabetes correctly, hyperglycemia can occur when the person becomes ill as a result of another condition like flu.
Warning signs include dry mouth and extreme thirst, sleepiness and confusion. Rarely, coma and even death can result if the condition is neglected. More often, long-term chronic hyperglycemia can lead to nerve, vision and kidney damage as well as heart disease
Ways to avoid hyperglycemia include carefully planned regular exercise and a healthy diet
for people with diabetes, as well as daily monitoring of blood sugar levels and diabetes medications under the close guidance of a doctor. Consult that doctor if symptoms persist because you may need to change your daily routine.
