Background: The glycemic control of the hospitalized diabetic patient is a priority which guarantees positive results in hospitable indicators. Objective: To evaluate the use of lab studies which determine the glycemic control of the hospitalized diabetic patient. Methodology: A descriptive investigation was carried out which comprised two periods of 2009 at Camilo Cienfuegos General Hospital. The study population was the amount of 170 diabetic patients: 157 discharged alive and 13 dead. Results: The use of lab studies addressed to determine the levels glycemia and cetonuria at the moment of admission were indicated ion less than the half od the patients. The follow up of intrahospitable hyperglycemia had difficulties not only in the ordinary wards but in the progressive cares as well. In most of the cases the glycemic grade control was not determined. Conclusions: The disglycemia diagnosis and follow up in the hospitalized diabetic patient in the periods evaluated was not optimum.

Key words: Glycemic control, disglycemia, intrahospitable hyperglycemia.
