High blood sugar - infants; High blood glucose level - infants
Babies with hyperglycemia often have no symptoms.
Sometimes, babies with high blood sugars will produce large amounts of urine and become dehydrated. High blood sugars may be a sign that the baby has added stress on the body due to problems such as an infection or heart failure.
A blood test to check glucose (blood sugar) levels can be done at the bedside or in a laboratory.
