CGM use, education focus of managing hyperglycemia in hospitalized adults with diabetes
Use of continuous glucose monitoring for glycemic management and inpatient diabetes education before discharge can improve outcomes for adults with diabetes hospitalized with hyperglycemia, according to a new clinical practice guideline.
In an article published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, the Endocrine Society released an updated clinical practice guideline for managing hyperglycemia in hospitalized patients in noncritical care settings. Last updated in 2012, the new guideline was drafted using an updated methodology adhering to the Institute of Medicine standards for formulating recommendations and for the first time, included a patient representative on the panel of clinician experts.

The expert panel developed the guideline by identifying and answering 10 clinical questions related to the inpatient management of patients with diabetes and hyperglycemia. Systematic reviews of studies pertaining to […]
