When glucose value raise above the normal value, is called hyperglycemia, on the other hand if it is lower than the normal value, I is called hypoglycemia. But mild or transient hyperglycemia may occur as a result of the following injury of some gland in the body system, such as pituitary gland, thyroid and adrenal gland.
Point to note is that there are still many case of false result, so don’t depend on single result, make sure that you carried out the investigation in two to three places before come to conclusion.
