Glucose variability to predict new onset of diabetes
Diabetes of the exocrine pancreas constitutes around 1.6% of all new-onset diabetes in adults. Its most common subtype, post-pancreatitis diabetes mellitus, is associated with a 13% higher risk of all-cause mortality than type 2 diabetes. Acute pancreatitis (AP) is the largest contributor to diabetes of the exocrine pancreas.
In a recent study, published in the United European Gastroenterology Journal on February 20, 2022. researchers reported that glucose variability (GV) during hospitalisation for acute pancreatitis accurately predicts future risk of developing deranged glucose metabolism, including new-onset diabetes after acute pancreatitis.
