Temperature in diabetes mellitus



body temperature diabetesdiabetes Patient needs to constantly monitor the temperature level of the body. A sharp increase of sugar level in the blood of the patient starts to grow, so you must take prompt action aimed at normalization of sugar level and only then to identify the causes of its rise.


surgery with increasing body temperature in a patient with diabetes mellitus.

A. If the temperature is over 37.5 degrees, but less than 38.5 C, it is necessary to measure the level of sugar in the blood. If the level has already begun to grow, you must also make a "short" insulin. The total dose should be increased by 10%. Throughout time to improve it before eating it is necessary to carry out the injection of insulin lowering action, which begins to act after 30 minutes.

B. In that case, if the temperature continues to rise and already exceeds 39 degrees, you should increase daily insulin dose by 25 %. It is important to note that it is not necessary to combine the intake of the prolonged (long) insulin and short-acting insulin. If povyshennyi long the insulin loses its properties, is destroyed and ceases to act. To the long insulin that is not effective include:


the Whole daily dose should be taken in the form of short-acting insulin. The techniques should be carried out every 3-4 hours in even doses.

C. if the temperature continues to rise, this leads to acetone. The appearance of acetone indicates a shortage of insulin in the blood, in this case it is necessary to immediately take 20% of a daily dose (about 8%) in the form of short-acting insulin. Repeat the procedure, if after 3 hours, my blood sugar came to normal and the temperature drops. If the sugar level began to decline should take several units of insulin (10-12 mmol/l) and 2-3 YE, and to achieve normalization of glycemia.

Statistics says that with increasing temperature, only 5 % of patients with diabetes admitted to hospital, while the rest are treated independently, resorting to the above methods of normalization of sugar level.

the Most common causes of increase can be:

1. Septic foci in the kidneys, pyelonephritis,

2. Cystitis,

3. Candidiasis,

4. Staph infection,

5. Pneumonia.

Best way to diagnose the disease and determine the cause to consult a qualified physician, who will prescribe the necessary treatment that are compatible with diabetes.


diabetesLow temperature in diabetes mellitus.

In the first place, it should be noted that the indicators from 35,8 to 37 degrees are the norm. In this case, it is not necessary to sound the alarm.

In that case, if it fell below 35.8 degrees, it is necessary to determine whether this is a symptom of the disease, or simply an individual characteristic of an organism. In that case, if there are no abnormalities, it is not likely to indicate disease. In this case it is necessary to raise the General tone of the body, exercise, take a contrast shower, try to dress warmly, if it's minus.

diabetes temperature can be reduced PI reduced glycogen stores, which is required for normal heat production. In this case, it is necessary to revise the dosage of taking insulin and consult your doctor.
