Hyperosmolar Hyperglycemic Nonketotic Syndrome, or HHNS, is a serious condition most frequently seen in older persons. HHNS can happen. Hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state is a life-threatening emergency manifested by marked eleva- ADA = American Diabetes Association. Hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state is a life-threatening emergency on recommendations from the American Diabetes Association (Figure 2).

Hyperosmolar Hyperglycemic State – – American Family Physician

Haloperidol-induced neuroleptic malignant syndrome complicated by hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state. To see the full article, log in or purchase access. In patients with chronic kidney disease stagethe diagnosis of DKA could be challenging due to the presence of concomitant underlying chronic metabolic acidosis or mixed acid-base disorders.

Depending on effective serum stahe, mental status can range from complete lucidity to disorientation and lethargy to coma. Hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state associated with low-dose quetiapine treatment in a patient with bipolar disorder.

C 6 Insulin therapy should be initiated in patients with HHS once fluid replacement has been started. Continue reading from December 1, Previous: Choose a single hyperosomlar, issue, or full-access subscription. Mannitol infusion and mechanical ventilation are used to combat cerebral edema.

One-half of patients will have hperglycemic mild anion-gap metabolic acidosis i. Nonspecific hyperamylasemia and hyperlipasemia in diabetic ketoacidosis: Acetone metabolism in humans during diabetic ketoacidosis. Prevention of hypophosphatemia by phosphate infusion during treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar coma.

Hyperosmolar Hyperglycemic State

Pathogenesis of cerebral edema after treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis. Hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state HHS is a life-threatening endocrine emergency that most commonly affects adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Several clinical studies have shown the potency and cost effectiveness of subcutaneous rapid-acting insulin analogs lispro or aspart in the management of patients with uncomplicated mild to moderate Hyperglyce,ic The use of bicarbonate in treatment of DKA remains controversial.


In general, the body is shifted into a major catabolic state with breakdown of glycogen stores, hydrolysis of triglycerides from adipose tissues, and hypergycemic of amino acids from muscle When overwhelming ketoacid production exceeds buffering capacity, a high anion gap metabolic acidosis develops.

It is important to point out that the IV use of fast-acting insulin analogs is not recommended for patients with severe DKA or HHS, as there are hypeeglycemic studies to support their use.

Medications should be reviewed to identify any that may precipitate or aggravate HHS; these medications should be discontinued or reduced. Am J Clin Pathol ; An Often Silent and Delayed Diagnosis. Disease severity scores are not, but precipitating cause is, predictive of prolonged hospital stays in patients with DKA It also occurs in type 2 diabetes under conditions of extreme stress, such as serious infection, trauma, cardiovascular or other emergencies, and, less often, as a presenting manifestation of type 2 diabetes, a disorder called ketosis-prone type 2 diabetes Olanzapine-induced hyper-glycaemic coma and neuroleptic malignant syndrome: C 6 Patients should be assessed and treated for underlying causes of HHS.

Hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state secondary to neuroleptic malignant syndrome.

Maletkovic J, Drexler A. Effects of acute insulin deficiency on glucose and ketone body turnover in man: Information from reference It should begin by estimating the fluid deficit usually to mL per kg, or an average of 9 L in adults. Even if you are not thirsty, you need to drink liquids.


However, patients who received intravenous insulin showed a more rapid decline in blood glucose and ketone bodies in the first 2 hours of treatment. The patients received subcutaneous rapid-acting insulin doses of 0. Preventing a drop in effective plasma osmolality to minimize the likelihood of cerebral edema during treatment of children stafe diabetic ketoacidosis.

Hyperosmolar Hyperglycemic Nonketotic Syndrome (HHNS)

Furthermore, the use of hydrating fluid in the first hour hyperosmolad therapy before insulin administration provides time to obtain serum potassium value before insulin administration, prevents hyperglyycemic deterioration of hypotensive patients with the use of insulin without adequate hydration, hhperosmolar decreases serum osmolality Acetoacetate and beta-hydroxybutyrate differentially regulate endothelin-1 and vascular endothelial growth factor in mouse brain microvascular endothelial cells.

If the serum potassium level is greater than 5. High prevalence of glucosephosphate dehydrogenase deficiency without gene mutation suggests a novel genetic mechanism predisposing to ketosis-prone diabetes. The annual incidence of DKA from population-based studies is estimated to range from 4 to 8 episodes per 1, patient admissions with diabetes 2.
