Background: Major surgery causes hyperglycemia which could affect the outcome of patients who undergo surgery however there is little knowledge on the effect of serum glucose level on the outcome of non-diabetic patients who had surgery. The aim of the present study was to observe the correlation of serum glucose and hemodynamic state in non-diabetic patients undergoing non-emergency surgery.

Methods: During this analytic cross sectional study patients who were under lower limb surgery were enrolled to our study. Inclusion criteria were age between 30 and 50 years, ASA criteria 1 to three and elective surgery also exclusion criteria were history of diabetes mellitus, use of corticosteroids and thyroids diseases. Early outcomes including blood pressure, glucose serum level and pulse rate were evaluated before and after surgery. At the end all data were analyzed through SPSS v.16.

Results: A total of 160 patients with mean (±SD) age of 42.5 ± 14.9 years were evaluated. There were 103 (64.4%) male and 57(35.6%) female patients. Serum glucose was different before, during and after surgery (p<0.05). There was significant correlation between pre surgery serum glucose and pre (p=0.002, r=0.487) and post (p=0.009, r=0.412) surgery systolic blood pressure.

Conclusion: Present study showed that glucose serum level could affect hemodynamic state of non-diabetic patients during surgery, thus, it seems in these patients tight control of glucose level could decrease the side effects.
