Racial/Ethnic- and Education-Related Disparities in the Control of Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease Among Individuals With Diabetes

Abstract: OBJECTIVEThere is limited information on whether recent improvements in the control of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors among individuals with diabetes have been concentrated in particular sociodemographic groups. This article estimates racial/ethnic- and education-related disparities and examines trends in uncontrolled CVD risk factors among adults with diabetes. The main racial/ethnic comparisons made are with African Americans versus non-Latino whites and Mexican Americans versus non-Latino whites.… Show more

“…1721 For example, subjects with type-2 diabetes have a two-fold increased risk for cognitive impairment and later dementia compared to those without diabetes. 22 Identifying subclinical mechanisms and predictors of cognitive impairment in a population with poor cardiovascular prognosis will constitute a non-invasive clue for risk of cognitive impairment, and may lead to more targeted screening and early preventive strategies to delay the progression of cognitive impairment.…”

“…2,3 A more recent report showed that among individuals with diagnosed diabetes, there was no change in smoking prevalence between 1988–1994 and 1999–2008. 4 However, these reports considered only participants with diagnosed diabetes and did not look more broadly at participants with undiagnosed diabetes or people with impaired fasting glucose. Undiagnosed diabetes accounts for ~40% of all diabetes cases, and the prevalence of impaired fasting glucose is about 26% according to a recent analysis.…”
