Abstract: A case report discussing the management of a patient with hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic state. This is intended to raise awareness about this complication of Type 2 diabetes and the factors that lead to it. HSS is mostly caused by severe dehydration and sepsis. Elderly patients often do not drink enough and infection is commonly seen in patients living in a hospitalised environment.
