COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Summary
Brief summary
Conditions of temporary glucose intolerance - such as gestational diabetes - identify people who are at risk from subsequently developing type 2 diabetes. This is important as the prompt diagnosis of glucose intolerance allows earlier treatment and a consequent reduction in complications associated with prolonged and untreated hyperglycaemia, dyslipidaemia and hypertension. The possibility that critical illness-associated hyperglycaemia (CIAH) could be a risk factor for subsequent type 2 diabetes has only been evaluated in one study. This study however has substantial limitations, which severely restrict interpretation of these data. If CIAH is a risk factor for development of type 2 diabetes, and the mechanisms underlying any glucose intolerance elucidated, survivors could be screened for diabetes and prompt appropriate therapy instituted.
