Abstract

In patients with type 2 diabetes who present with moderate to severe hyperglycemia, both insulin and intravenous fluids are associated with a modest glucose reduction. Intravenous fluids were associated with a significant increase in ED LOS, but insulin was not. These results should be considered when determining whether to administer therapies that reduce glucose in the ED.
