The authors discuss the utility of admission hyperglycemia to diagnose diabetes. Review of various studies indicate that while admission hyperglycaemia is very likely to suggest either diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), a subsequent oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is required to confirm the diagnosis of diabetes. Thus, the authors claim that utility of treating admission hyperglycaemia remains unclear that requires further investigations.
