Identification of Inpatients at Risk for Poor Glycemic Control

This study is enrolling participants by invitation only.

Vanderbilt University
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01043042
First received: January 4, 2010
Last updated: January 5, 2010
Last verified: January 2010
  Purpose

Both hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia can be detrimental to hospitalized patients. However, it is not clear which patients are more likely to develop significant problems with hypoglycemia or severe hyperglycemia in the hospital. Our hypothesis is that we will be able to identify risk factors present at admission that identify patients at greater risk of poor inpatient glycemic control
