A number of University of Kentucky, Department of Emergency Medicine faculty and staff (Dr. Roger Humphries, Dr. Peter Akpunonu, Dr. Craig Carter, Dr. Sameer Desai, Dr. Joel Hamm, Linda Dechtenberg, Brian Dennis, Theresa Mims, and Joann Short) are collaborators on the research article discussing the question, Does intensive glucose control improve functional outcome in patients with hyperglycemic acute ischemic stroke?
The Conclusion and Relevance stated, “Among patients with acute ischemic stroke and hyperglycemia, treatment with intensive vs standard glucose control for up to 72 hours did not result in a significant difference in favorable functional outcome at 90 days. These findings do not support using intensive glucose control in this setting.” Click on the citation below to read more.
