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
