Continuous blood glucose trace for Patient 2. Postoperative blood glucose in a 73-year-old woman with diabetes in whom a right total hip arthroplasty (THA) had been performed. X-axis, postoperative day; Y-axis, blood glucose concentration (mg/dl). Black spots, blood glucose concentrations measured using SMGB. Each number is the blood glucose concentration (mg/dl) at that time point. Arrow (rapid), the administration of rapid-acting insulin; arrow (long), the administration of long-acting insulin
