Steroid-induced hyperglycemia (SIHG) has shown to independently increase the risk for mortality in patients with acute graft-versus-host disease, and it is still unclear whether SIHG might be a modifiable risk factor. Therefore, a feasibility trial was carried out aiming to evaluate the performance of a standardized decision support system (GlucoTab [GT]) for insulin therapy in patients with SIHG. A total of 10 hyperglycemic acute graft-versus-host ...
