Hyperglycaemia occurs when people with diabetes have too much sugar in their bloodstream. If blood sugar levels remain high for a length of time, further health complications may occur (Diabetes.co.uk). This book is a concise guide to hyperglycaemia in acutely ill, hospitalised patients. Beginning with an introduction to the epidemiology and pathophysiology of the condition, the following chapters discuss the monitoring of glucose levels and their management. The final sections examine the transition from inpatient to outpatient setting. Written by recognised endocrinologists from Harvard Medical School, Boston, this book includes illustrations and tables and is a highly useful reference for practising diabetologists and trainees.
