Hyperosmolar Syndrome

Hyperosmolar Syndrome comes about when blood sugar levels get really high (600 milligrams per decileter).  When glucose is that high, the blood gets really thick and sticky.  Then, when all of the excess sugar passes into the urine, a filtering process draws a lot of fluid from the body.  As a result, severe dehydration occurs which can cause stroke, heart attack, diabetic coma, or death.
