PMID:  23410646     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
Hyperglycemia is common and often unrecognized among hospitalized patients, and it increases the risk of poor outcome, increased length of stay, and increased cost. Hyperglycemia can complicate features of underlying disease and some therapies. This article discusses physiology and types of diabetes, glycemic targets in the noncritical care setting, factors that contribute to hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia in the hospitalized patient, insulin types, common insulin regimens used in the hospital setting, and implications for the nurse.
