New guidelines for glycemic control in hospitalized patients

---are out from the American College of Physicians. They recommend against intensive glycemic control for any patients, ICU or ward, with the exception of post surgical patients in the SICU. I've listened to plenty of speakers from the diabetes mafia at hospitalist meetings over the last several years and this turns everything they've said upside down.

Thanks for posting this link. Our hospital has spent large amounts of money and time on peri-operative tight glycemic control and continues to do so, all on the promise that infection rates and length of stay will decrease.
