Clinical Outcome in Ischemic Stroke Patients with Hyperglycaemia
Dr. Divya Mahalakshmi Cholan
Abstract: There is a linear correlation between admission day hyperglycemia and ischemic stroke in its severity, size and outcome. There is a positive correlation between admission day glucose level and the outcome in ischemic stroke. Admission day elevated glucose level was a significant predictor of mortality and poor functional outcome after acute stroke. Hence, restoration of normoglycemia as soon as possible should be encouraged. In the interim, we should fare well with adhering to good general stroke management, normalization of body temperature, fluid balance and hemodynamics or we may otherwise risk the favorable outcome even in the patients with normoglycemia.
