This review concluded that intensive insulin therapy did not reduce mortality or improve health outcomes in hospitalised patients, but that it was associated with increased risk of severe hypoglycaemia. The authors' conclusions reflected the evidence presented, but in view of the potential for language bias and the clinical variation between trials, the conclusions should be viewed with caution.
