Table 2 Mean amplitude of the fluctuation in glucose concentration in the diabetic and pre-diabetic groups

From: Higher blood glucose and larger fluctuations detected postoperatively using continuous glucose monitoring: a preliminary study following total knee or hip arthroplasty

  Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5
All cases (n = 20) 32.7 26.6 21.6 21.5 17.4
Diabetic group (n = 12) 35.8 27.7 17.1 21.5 15.9
Pre-diabetic group (n = 8) 28.8 25.1 27.3 21.4 19.3
P value 0.35 0.65 0.07 0.99 0.23
  1. Data are the standard deviation of the subcutaneous glucose concentration on each post-operative day (mg/dl)
