More Than 50% of Hispanics with Diabetes Are Out of Control

The results come from a multi-year medical research study released last week that examined health issues among U.S. Hispanic/Latino groups. "As a group, approximately one-third of Hispanics with the disease do not know they have diabetes," stated Larissa Aviles-Santa, the study's project director and Medical Officer with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's Division of Cardiovascular Sciences. "So there is an opportunity here to take a look at clinical practices and think about how we can enhance guidelines and raise awareness among the Hispanic community." The study also revealed significant differences in the prevalence of diabetes across Hispanic groups: the disease was more common among those of Mexican, Puerto Rican and Dominican origin and least prevalent among those from South America.
