According to estimates, at least 15% to 30% of hospitalized patients have hyperglycemia or diabetes. A full 2/3 of critical care patients fall into this category, as do 1/3 of cardiac surgery patients.

Current recommendations of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), which have been used predominantly in the United States, present goals for fasting/preprandial and bedtime glucose levels but do not define a target for postprandial glucose.
