Difference between Hyperglycemia and diabetes?

Hi All! I've just been diagnosed with Hyperglycemia. What is the difference between that and diabetes?

Thank you!

Not much.

Basically you have high blood sugar which consisitantly is diabetes. Hypoglycemia is different.

Re: Difference between Hyperglycemia and diabetes?

Hi guys

I just want to know, if my GTT comes normal is there any chance that I still can be hypoglycemic? What's the most accurate test or what else can I do to detect if something's wrong with my blood sugar?

Thanks in advance

Hypoglycemia is LOW blood sugar. Hyperglycemia is HIGH blood sugar. Which is it you think you have?
