Background: Acute hyperglycemia has been recognized as a robust predictor for occurrence of acute kidney injury (AKI) in nondiabetic patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), however, its discriminatory ability for AKI is unclear in diabetic patients after an AMI. Here, we investigated whether stress hyperglycemia ratio (SHR), a novel index with the combined evaluation of acute and chronic glycemic levels, may have a better predictive value of AKI as compared with admission glycemia alone in diabetic patients following AMI.
Methods: SHR was calculated with admission blood glucose (ABG) divided by the glycated hemoglobin-derived estimated average glucose. Read More
