A clinical practice guideline for inpatient hyperglycemia management from the Endocrine Society was published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. The guideline focuses on hyperglycemia management in non-critically ill hospitalized patients and highlights the use of emerging diabetes technology, including real-time continuous glucose monitoring (RT-CGM), for glycemic management in the hospital. Based on available evidence, the guideline recommends use of RT-CGM with confirmatory point-of-care (POC) testing for insulin dosing decisions in adults with insulin-treated diabetes hospitalized for noncritical illness who are at high risk of hypoglycemia.
