The author discusses whether the Hyperglycemia and its Effect After Acute Myocardial Infarction on Cardiovascular Outcomes in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (HEART2D) study can resolve the debate about the association of postprandial hyperglycemia with cardiovascular disease. He notes that the study was not able to determine any benefit of postprandial hyperglycemia treatment to cardiovascular disease among diabetics. He stresses that the challenge of controlling postprandial hyperglycemia stands as the real concern.
