5A40/E15-E16 Intermediate hyperglycaemia



Intermediate hyperglycaemia is a condition that is caused by inadequate insulin production and/or resistance to insulin. It is most commonly found in people with type 2 diabetes, but can also be found in other conditions such as obesity and metabolic syndrome.


Diagnosis of intermediate hyperglycaemia is made by measuring blood glucose levels. If the blood glucose level is higher than normal but not high enough to meet the criteria for diabetes, then the condition is diagnosed.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis of intermediate hyperglycaemia includes other conditions such as prediabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome.


Treatment of intermediate hyperglycaemia typically involves lifestyle changes such as increasing physical activity, eating a healthy diet, and reducing stress. Medications such as metformin and insulin may also be prescribed to help control blood glucose levels.


With proper treatment, intermediate hyperglycaemia can be managed and the risk of developing diabetes can be reduced. However, if left untreated, the condition can progress to type 2 diabetes.
