Hyperglycemia in hospitalized patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is linked to increased morbidity and mortality. This article reports on a novel insulin titration protocol for the management of glucocorticoid-induced hyperglycemia in hospitalized patients with COVID-19. Sixty-five patients with COVID-19 and glucocorticoid-induced hyperglycemia admitted after the protocol implementation were matched 1:1 to patients admitted before the treatment protocol rollout for analysis. In a large, diverse health system, the protocol achieved reductions in hypoglycemic events without increasing hyperglycemia or insulin use.
