Description

The aim of this report is to provide guidance for the management of hyperglycaemia in a range of hospital situations. The Australian Diabetes Society has focused on the management of hyperglycaemia in patients with myocardial infarction and stroke, on general hospital wards, receiving enteral and parenteral nutrition, with steroid‐induced or exacerbated hyperglycaemia, and in end of life situations. The optimal means of achieving tight control, the role of the specialist inpatient diabetes team, inpatient management of insulin pump therapy, and general measures for diabetes management have also been examined. It also provides guidance for the follow‐up of patients with newly discovered hyperglycaemia. The recommendations were based on evidence obtained from systematic reviews where trials had been performed; otherwise they were made by consensus.
