An investigation of patients with diabetes who were hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) suggests that few undergo glucose therapy intensification (GTI) at discharge. The research team added that long-term glucose control appears to be poor among patients with diabetes who suffer an AMI. Only about 31% of patients in the study underwent GTI, which occurred most frequently among those in whom clinical A1C was measured.
