Poorer diabetics receive worse care than other in countries with universal health coverage

or do not realize the important role played by self-managing their disease in the prevention of diabetes complications.

The UGR researcher points out that "the worst part is carried by minority ethnic groups, who are not only diagnosed later and control their disease worse, but they are also treated differently and have greater difficulty in accessing health services responsible for monitoring the disease (endocrinology, early detection of diabetic retinopathy or diabetic foot programs...) ".

In order to accomplish this work, data were collected from published studies because the methodology used was the systematic review of medic literature. Such researches provide higher level of evidence according to the scientific community, as they review all previously published studies on a particular theme by bringing together all the accumulated scientific knowledge so they can respond to a specific research question. Furthermore, the quality of these studies is assessed as to determine objectively which studies should be taken into account and those which should not.

Ethnic Inequalities

The UGR researcher points out that over 80% of the papers published on ethnic inequalities so far, show that ethnic minority populations access health services related to controlling their disease with greater difficulty, and 85% of the articles on socioeconomic inequalities agree that people with lower socioeconomic level control their disease worse than the rest of patients.

Furthermore, if these inequalities exist in the treatment of diabetes, it would not be surprising to think that they also may exist in the case of other chronic diseases like AIDS, cardiovascular or mental health related diseases. Ultimately, according to the author of this research, "given that social inequalities in health care are unnecessary, unjust and avoidable, results of this study should be
