Abstract Intensive glycemic control has become standard practice. Existing data, however, suggest this practice may have adverse consequences for traumatic brain injury. The recent paper by Meier and colleagues suggests that intensive glycemic control may be deleterious. The present article explores existing literature surrounding this controversy, and outlines the literature that raises concern. Finally, I suggest an alternative course of action that may enable control of glucose in an optimal range.
