Abstract

After surgical operation or trauma, postoperative hyperglycaemia develops as a result of increased glucose production combined with decreased glucose uptake in peripheral tissues [1-2]. This is largely as a result of insulin resistance which is transiently induced within the stressed patient. It has been suggested that mechanisms for this phenomenon include the action of pro-inflammatory cytokines and the decreased responsiveness of insulin-regulated glucose transporter proteins [1-2].
