NICE SUGAR: Intensive insulin therapy risks
Date:3/24/2009

aconess Medical Center, Boston, Mass; Queen's University and Kingston General Hospital, Kingston, Ontario; McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario; Royal North Shore Hospital and the University of Sydney, Australia.

"We suggest that policy makers reconsider recommendations promoting the use of intensive insulin therapy in all critically ill patients," write the authors. However, because the study included data from trials in different populations with varied illness severity, they "cannot exclude the possibility that some patients may benefit from intensive insulin therapy and be at less risk of hypoglycemic events."

In a related commentary (http://www.cmaj.ca/press/cmaj.090500.pdf), Dr. Greet Van den Berghe and colleagues argue that differences in specific elements of how intensive insulin therapy was delivered account for the varying findings of individual studies and that a single guideline for intensive insulin therapy applicable to all patients is not appropriate.
