Yes. Surgery can lead to high blood glucose in non-diabetic.
-Any surgery acts as a physical stress to the body.
-The body prepares for a speedy recovery and during this period, our body mobilizes energy from glucose that is, to overcome this tension.
-Certain hormones are released too much to overcome this tension. Among many others, such as cortisol, these hormones include insulin and glucagon, both of which work in combination to keep our blood sugar levels within the normal range.
-This increased mobilization of glucose as a “stress response” and increased release of hormones can lead to an imbalance of blood sugar levels and, therefore, increase sugar levels (especially in nondiabetic ).
-This is usually controlled without drugs, such as glucose levels fall within the normal range within a few hours or days. But if insulin in diabetic patients need be administered to control it.
