BACKGROUND Admission hyperglycaemia is associated with poorer prognosis in patients with an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Whether hyperglycaemia is more important than prior long-term glucose metabolism, is unknown. AIM To investigate the prognostic value of admission glucose and HbA(1c) levels in patients with ACS. METHODS We measured glucose and HbA(1c) at admission in 521 consecutive patients with suspected ACS. Glucose was categorized as <7.8 (n = 305), 7.8-11.0 (n = 138) or > or =11.1… CONTINUE READING
