Insulin is useful for controlling and avoiding hyperglycemia. If it is added to the parenteral nutrition bag, the suggested intake ranges from 1 IU per 10 g glucose in malnourished minimally stressed patients to 1 IU per 4 to 5 g of glucose in severely catabolic patients. When resistance is severe, it is safer to administer insulin (1-3 IU/h) with a syringe pump.
