Liberal glucose control worked well for ICU patients with diabetes, study finds

ICU patients who were given insulin only when glucose exceeded 14 mmol/L (>252 mg/dL) had slightly less hypoglycemia and similar creatinine levels, white cell counts, and mortality rates versus those treated with insulin when glucose exceeded 10 mmol/L (>180 mg/dL).
