Response: Effect of preoperative consumption of high carbohydrate drink (Pre-Op) on postoperative metabolic stress reaction in patients undergoing radical prostatectomy

Response: Effect of preoperative consumption of high carbohydrate drink (Pre‑Op) on postoperative metabolic stress reaction in patients undergoing radical prostatectomy Ozgur Canbay 0 1 Editor 0 1 0 Department of Anesthesiology, Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine , Sıhhıye, Ankara 06100 , Turkey 1 Ozgur Canbay, M.D. Hacettepe University Ankara , Turkey We thank to Dilmen, M.D., for making comment about our article entitled “Effect of preoperative consumption of high carbohydrate drink (Pre-Op) on postoperative metabolic stress reaction in patients undergoing radical prostatectomy.” As we mentioned in our manuscript, the blood samples were obtained from all patients both prior to the surgery (preoperative) and on the 24th hour after surgery to measure blood glucose, insulin, and procalcitonin levels. We have used the standard homeostatic model assessmentinsulin resistance equation [HOMA-IR = fasting insulin (μg mL−1) × fasting blood glucose (mg dL−1)/405] to detect insulin resistance.
