Management of Hyperglycemia in the Noncritical Care Setting

Key Points

  • Hyperglycemia is associated with poor outcomes in noncritically ill patients.

  • Glycemic goals for noncritically ill patients

    • Premeal blood glucose: <140 mg/dL

    • Random blood glucose: <180 mg/dL

    • Reassess insulin regimen if blood glucose is <100 mg/dL, and adjust insulin regimen if blood glucose is <70 mg/dL (unless explained by a missed meal or other specific factors)
