HYPERGLYCAEMIA Symptoms and Causes

Hyperglycemia means high blood sugar or glucose. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that moves glucose into your cells to give them energy. Hyperglycemia happens when your body doesn't make enough insulin or can't use it the right way.

People with diabetes can get hyperglycemia from not eating the right foods or not taking medicines correctly. Other problems that can raise blood sugar include infections, certain medicines, hormone imbalances, or severe illnesses.

After taking 300 mgm a day of seroquel, I gained 30 lbs over a period of 3 months with all the symptoms of metabolic syndrome. Now I am unable to lose that weight even though I no longer take the medicati9on

After taking Seroquel for about two weeks, I came down with quite serious laryngitis. I've had it for about a week and it is not getting any better. I don't have a cold or sore throat and can't think of any other reason for this. Could this be cau

Check out my med list; kind like a handbook isn't it?

Doing range of motion exercises on the neck with the head is an excellent way of treating cronic insomonia. >:o O:-)

I also had to increase the weight for my pendulum exercises to make easier to adjust my shoulder. :)

I also had to raise my arms up and down behind my head in order to adjust the top of my neck.

I am having the same experience. I also had been taking Seroquel for about 2 weeks when I began to lose my voice. I am researching today because my laryngitis is practically 100% today.

I Believe Seroquel killed my husband. He tried to get help with depression and suiside and seroquel made him worse. I totally believe this awful drug killed him and he was only 45. I miss him terribly and hope I can help to keep suiside patients off

I had such severe side effects I thought I was going insane. My husband even got out the video camera to show me how bad it was. I rocked and rocked back and forth, my entire body shook involuntarily, I paced, I didn't sleep,I couldn't rest or relax

I have been taking seroquel and zyban. i have two children, and trying for another. When i gave birth to my children i was on other medication. Since on this combination of seroquel and zyban i cannot seem to ovulate.

India. Patient male 74 was treated for Urinary Tract Infection. Gatifloxacin was given orally for 7 days and then intraveinous for 2 days. Side effects: Hyperglycaemia, sugar shot upto 700, was admitted to ICU. Other side effect terribly high degree

HYPERGLYCAEMIA Clinical Trials and Studies

Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also participate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
