Jagdeesh Ullal from Eastern Virginia Medical School: Measuring the Costs of Hypoglycemia in Hospital Patients
JUNE 16, 2016
When patients enter the hospital monitoring their blood glucose can be even more important to limit the effects of hypoglycemia. If the condition does develop it can make the stays longer and more expensive for everyone involved.
Jagdeesh Ullal, MD, MS, from Eastern Virginia Medical School discussed this topic during the American Diabetes Association's annual meeting in New Orleans. Ullal noted that while the research could apply to outpatient care as well his research focused on hospitals where costs can vary based on how long the patient stays and the amount of care needed during their stay.
