Brief description Increased glucose concentrations occur commonly in ICU patients and are associated with increased mortality and morbidity. There is a need to improve the understanding of the causes underlying so-called 'critical illness induced hyperglycaemia' as well as new therapies to reduce blood glucose in this group. The proposed studies will focus on the potential role of incretin hormones, which have the capacity to stimulate insulin without increasing the risk of abnormally low blood glucose levels.
