Diabetes Experts Issue New Recommendations for Inpatient Glycemic Control - Call for Systemic Changes in Hospitals Nationwide
Date:5/8/2009

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. and ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New recommendations released today by a consensus group of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) are calling for major changes in the way health care professionals treat hospitalized patients with high blood glucose (sugar) levels.

Several recent randomized controlled clinical trials in critically ill patients in ICUs with diabetes or elevated blood glucose levels have failed to show a significant improvement in mortality with intensive insulin therapy to achieve near normal glucose levels. Moreover, a large newly-published randomized controlled trial showed an increase in mortality risk associated with intensive control of glycemia targeting blood glucose of 80-110 mg/dL. These outcomes have raised concerns regarding specific glycemic targets and the means for achieving them in both critically and non-critically ill patients.

Recognizing the importance of glycemic control across the continuum of care, experts from AACE and ADA were invited to develop an upda
