Postprandial hyperglycaemia: Red herring or red flag?

Abstract:
Several studies have suggested that postprandial rather than fasting hyperglycaemia may be a major determinant of cardiovascular risk. This article reviews the importance of postprandial hyperglycaemia and explores the benefits and risks of managing postprandial hyperglycaemia aggressively in order to prevent diabetes-related complications.
