Diabetes Care Center at Centinela Hospital, Inglewood, CA 90301, USA.


A growing body of evidence suggests that there is a close correlation between good glucose control and improved clinical outcomes in hospitalized diabetic patients. Until recently, however, no established standards have existed for caring for people with diabetes in the hospital. At a recent consensus conference, experts from around the world studied the evidence and recommended new glycemic targets for hospitalized patients (Endocr Pract 2004; 10:77-82). The challenge now is to implement these targets.
