Abstract

Although control of chronic glycemia in the population with diabetes and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) has been extensively studied in recent years, the unique problems of short-term glycemic management in acutely ill patients undergoing dialysis have received little attention. Bally et al. evaluated the role of a "closed-loop" (glucose sensor/algorithm tablet device/insulin pump) system in a cohort of hospitalized patients with type 2 diabetes receiving hemodialysis. Compared with usual care, the intervention group had superior glycemic control without increased hypoglycemic events. Additional studies are warranted.
