Hispanics have more difficulty controlling diabetes than non-Hispanic whites
Date:2/15/2008

ino individuals compared with 6.9 percent for non-Hispanic whites in 2005.

We were not surprised by these findings since ethnic minorities in the U.S. are disproportionately affected by diabetes, and we found a similar trend in the African American population with diabetes a year ago, said Kirk. What did surprise us were the results of our analysis of subgroups of patients with managed care and non-managed care insurance. The largest difference for A1C was among non-managed care insurance groups.

The authors recommend development of strategies that focus not only on discovering the source of the differences in diabetes control between the two groups, but also on reducing these disparities.

A high percentage of Hispanics in this country have low incomes, no health insurance, and limited access to health care, said Kirk. The Hispanic population has a high prevalence of diabetes and higher A1C than non-Hispanic whites. This further elucidates the health disparities that characterize the Hispanic population.
