Hyperglycemia or High Blood Sugar is a condition in which an excessive amount of glucose circulates in the blood plasma.

Hyperglycemia is one of the classic symptoms of diabetes mellitus, others including frequent and excessive thirst accompanied by frequent and excessive urination.

But hyperglycemia is not exclusive to diabetes mellitus, and can often occur independently in the context of many other medical conditions.
