Meaning of Hyperglycemia
Hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar (also spelled hyperglycaemia or hyperglycæmia, not to be confused with the opposite disorder, hypoglycemia) is a condition in which an excessive amount of glucose circulates in the blood plasma. This is generally a blood sugar level higher than 11.1 mmol/l (200 mg/dl), but symptoms may not start to become noticeable until even higher values such as 15–20 mmol/l (~250–300 mg/dl). A subject with a consistent range between ~5.6 and ~7 mmol/l (100–126 mg/dl) (American Diabetes Association guidelines) is considered hyperglycemic, while above 7 mmol/l (126 mg/dl) is generally held to have diabetes. Chronic levels exceeding 7 mmol/l (125 mg/dl) can produce organ damage. - See link


Hyperglycemia in Spanish is Hiperglucemia
Hiperglucemia o hiperglicemia significa cantidad excesiva de glucosa en la sangre. Es el hallazgo básico en todos los tipos de diabetes mellitus, cuando no está controlada o en sus inicios. El término opuesto es hipoglucemia. - See link
