Organophosphate poisoning can cause several serious complications. These include:

  • metabolic disorders, such as hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) and glycosuria (excess sugar in urine)
  • diabetic ketoacidosis , in which your blood produces excess blood acids
  • pancreatitis , or inflammation of the pancreas
  • cancer
  • neurological problems, such as muscle weakness and twitching, poor concentration, poor memory, and post-traumatic stress disorder
  • fertility problems
