There is a well-established link between minority groups and diabetes. Minority populations, including African Americans, Australian Indigenous, Hispanic/Latinos, Native Americans, and Asian Americans, have a higher risk of developing diabetes.
There are multiple factors that contribute to this disparity, including genetics, lifestyle behaviours, and access to healthcare. For example, minority populations are more likely to live in neighbourhoods with limited access to healthy food options and safe places to exercise, which can increase the risk of obesity and diabetes. In addition, language barriers and limited access to healthcare may make it harder for people in minority groups to receive timely and appropriate diabetes screening and treatment.
It is important for healthcare providers to recognise and address these disparities to improve diabetes prevention and management in minority populations. This may involve increasing access to culturally and linguistically appropriate healthcare services, providing education on healthy lifestyle behaviours, and implementing policies and programs that support healthy living environments.
Here is our community member "Thapi Semenya" spreading awareness about minority groups within the diabetes space:

Please remember, it is important to consult with a doctor or diabetes healthcare professional for personalised advice and guidance on how to manage diabetes.
Remember to always seek advice from your medical practitioner before changing anything about your diabetes management. The above information is not medical advice.
