Hyperglycemia happens when the level of glucose in the blood stream is too high. This medical condition occurs as a symptom of an underlying medical condition such as diabetes, pancreatitis, or hyperthyroidism. Additionally, using the anti-psychotic drug Risperdal has been identified as a catalyst of its development.
Individuals with hyperglycemia are at higher risk of experiencing eye problems, including glaucoma, cataracts, and disorder of the blood vessels in the retina. They may experience skin infections and musculoskeletal disorders. Furthermore, serious medical complications such as kidney failure and cardiovascular disorders have a higher risk of developing if hyperglycemia remains untreated.
If taking Risperdal has caused you undue harm, a lawyer at Williams Hart may help you understand your legal options in seeking justice and financial compensation through a civil claim. Call us at (713) 352-7071 today to learn more about your eligibility to take such action.
