• acute
  • 1) Acute sensory neuropathy. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Acute sensory neuropathy is rare, tends to follow periods of poor metabolic control (e.g., ketoacidosis) or sudden change in glycemic control (e.g., "insulin neuritis"), and is characterized by the acute onset of severe sensory symptoms (as detailed below) with marked nocturnal exacerbation but few neurologic signs on examination of the legs. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Acute neuropathy (neuritis) usually disappears once the diabetes is under control. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • Acute complications can include diabetic ketoacidosis, hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state, or death. (wikipedia.org)
  • Signs and symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis may include: Ketoacidosis Kussmaul hyperventilation: deep, rapid breathing Confusion or a decreased level of consciousness Dehydration due to glycosuria and osmotic diuresis Acute hunger and/or thirst 'Fruity' smelling breath odor Impairment of cognitive function, along with increased sadness and anxiety Hyperglycemia caused a decrease in cognitive performance, specifically in processing speed, and executive function and performance.

  • glucose
  • Diabetic neuropathies also appear to be more common in people who have problems controlling their blood glucose, also called blood sugar, as well as those with high levels of blood fat and blood pressure and those who are overweight. (nih.gov)
  • Autonomic neuropathy can also cause hypoglycemia unawareness, a condition in which people no longer experience the warning symptoms of low blood glucose levels. (nih.gov)
  • Neuropathy is more likely to occur if your A1c (average blood glucose level) remains high over time. (amazonaws.com)
  • It is VERY important that you see your doctor regarding this pain and tingling in your arm since it is necessary to bring your glucose levels back to normal to stop the progression of the neuropathy. (empowher.com)
  • However, in uncontrolled diabetics that have high blood glucose - more than the glycolysis pathway can handle - the reaction's mass balance ultimately favors the production of sorbitol. (wikipedia.org)
  • For diabetics, glucose levels that are considered to be too hyperglycemic can vary from person to person, mainly due to the person's renal threshold of glucose and overall glucose tolerance. (wikipedia.org)
  • microvascular
  • Microvascular abnormalities, particularly basement membrane thickening and endothelial cell hyperplasia, are an early feature of diabetic microangiopathy and relate to neuropathic severity. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • ketoacidosis
  • citation needed] People (usually with type 1 DM) may also experience episodes of diabetic ketoacidosis, a metabolic disturbance characterized by nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, the smell of acetone on the breath, deep breathing known as Kussmaul breathing, and in severe cases a decreased level of consciousness.
