Having an underlying condition is a strong risk factor associated with the development of diabetic hyperosmolar syndrome. Congestive heart failure and kidney failure are two of the most common underlying conditions patients with this syndrome may have. To promote a successful outcome, treatment for underlying conditions is normally provided at the same time as fluids and other treatments for diabetic hyperosmolar syndrome. Since patients may not be aware they have an underlying condition, they will be given a physical exam and blood tests at the hospital. Along with blood pressure screening and electrocardiogram monitoring, these checks can detect numerous underlying ailments. Occasionally, treatment for underlying conditions may require additional tests or procedures that need to be completed at a later date. In this case, hospital staff will focus on stabilizing the patient and getting their blood glucose back down to a normal range. Once the patient is stable and awake, additional investigations or medications for underlying conditions can be provided.
