Racial differences show difference in blood sugar control too!!

gives an idea as to how well the blood sugar control plan is working, which is useful for patients and health care providers.

The level of A1C was 0.65% less in whites than blacks. It is already known that there is 21% reduction in any complication of diabetes for every 1% reduction in A1C levels. Thus, in this study, whites had 15% less chances of getting the complications than the blacks.

Minority populations may show poorer blood sugar control, according to earlier studies. Differences in quality of care, counting the intensity of treatment; socioeconomic differences, such as being less likely to have prescription drug coverage, and genetic differences are the likely reasons for it.

The researchers said further research is required to examine these factors, as they could not it in their study.

"Although A1C control among blacks likely contributes to their elevated risk of complications, it accounts for only a portion," said Kirk, an associate professor of family and community medicine.

"We need to understand more fully why this disparity exists and to eliminate factors that may be changeable, such as improving access to care.
