Stroke is the second leading cause of death globally; stroke is more severe in patients with hemorrhagic stroke than ischemic stroke. Nearly 2 out of 3 patients with acute stroke have a high blood glucose level as a physiological response from an acute disease. Poor clinical outputs are often found in acute stroke patients with hyperglycemia. This study aims to determine the differences in blood glucose levels in ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke patients in RSU UKI Jakarta. It is descriptive observational research with the cross-sectional method. The sample is 132 patients, using total sampling with specified inclusion and exclusion criteria. The data used is secondary data. Data processing was performed using SPSS. The study revealed that from 108 ischemic stroke patients, 79 patients (73,1%) show an increase in blood glucose level and out of 24 hemorrhagic stroke patients, all the patients show an increase in blood glucose level. The mean value in blood glucose level during ischemic stroke is 129,83mg/dL and in hemorrhagic stroke is 151,12mg/dL. This study concludes that there is a significant difference (= 0,001) in blood glucose level, which means the mean value of blood glucose level in hemorrhagic stroke is higher than ischemic stroke.
