The high incidence of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among diabetic patients. It is well known that postprandial hyperglycemia is an independent risk factor for diabetic complications and mortality. For better management of diabetic patients, effort must be put forth to not only achieve the HbA1c target, but also to control postprandial hyperglycemia. This article reviews the pathophysiology and clinical aspects of postprandial hyperglycemia to appropriately control blood glucose level.
Key Words: Hyperglycemia, Glycosylated hemoglobin A
