Abstract

As the Hispanic population in the United States increases, more primary care physicians are being challenged to address the high incidence of diabetes and related metabolic disorders in Hispanic American patients. A variety of genetic, environmental, and socioeconomic factors contribute to this group's high susceptibility to diabetes. In this article, Drs Idrogo and Mazze discuss diagnosis of diabetes in Hispanic patients, as well as culturally sensitive screening and treatment strategies.
