Program Overview

This activity will review the physiological response to severe hyperglycemia and the most frequent causes and consequences. Because significant hyperglycemia can largely be prevented, a review of the education principles to share with persons with diabetes to promote prevention will be reviewed along with the recommended frequency of touch points with individuals on this topic. Due to the complexity of treatment, the basics will be reviewed to increase awareness of the challenges of treating these serious outcomes of severe hyperglycemia.
