'Race, risk and behaviors: A type 2 diabetes update'
Date:4/29/2014

Philadelphia, April 29, 2014 Clinical Therapeutics features a special report in its April issue focusing primarily on the behavioral issues associated with patients' self-management of type 2 diabetes. "Diabetes, perhaps more so than any other chronic disease, requires people to significantly modify their behaviorssometimes in ways that are contrary to their cultural norms and backgroundseven when they don't 'feel' sick or experience symptoms of the disease," said John G. Ryan, Dr.PH., Topic Editor for Endocrinology and Diabetes, and guest editor for the April 2014 Diabetes Update, entitled Race, Risk and Behaviors. Publication of the Diabetes Update coincided with the recent approval from the US Food and Drug Administration of a new dapagliflozin from AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder affecting about 24 million people in the United States. An asymptomatic period that occurs between the onset of diabetic hyperglycemia, the elevated blood sugar levels that are a hallmark sign of type 2 diabetes, and clinical diagnosis is estimated to last from four to seven years, and many people are estimated to have had the condition for an average of ten years prior to diagnosis and treatment. During this time, irreversible damage can occur, often resulting in a high prevalence of retinopathy and an increased risk for cardiovascular disease. The delay in diagnosis also prevents pharmacological interventions from being initiated, and non-pharmacological activities from being started, such as engaging in diabetes education, discontinuing tobacco use, modifying dietary behaviors and increasing physical activity for improving cardiovascular health and stimulating weight loss. The risk of developing type 2 diabetes is associated with multiple factors, including race. African Americans have a 77% greater risk of being diagnosed with diabetes compared to Caucasians in the US
