There were 17 (34%) cases and 7 (14%) in control with IGT values which was statistically significant p= 0.034. Post prandial blood sugar at time of admission were 131.18 ± 21.52 in cases, 121.86 ± 21.47 in controls and at the time discharge in cases and controls were 139.10 ± 21.27 and 128.88 ± 9.44 respectively with p=0.003.
