While diabetes can be a concern for anyone, if you are a Hispanic adult, you should be especially alert. Hispanic people are nearly twice as likely to have type 2 diabetes as non-Hispanic white people. Also, Hispanic adults with diabetes are more likely to suffer from diabetes complications, including death.Because of this increased risk, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) suggests special screening for the Hispanic community. Hispanic people who are overweight may need to be screened for diabetes earlier than the general population.https://healthguides.cnn.com/your-guide-to-treating-diabetes...FuskieWho would be be sure to talk with your doctor if you think you exhibit symptoms commonly associated with diabetes and ask for an A1C test...-----Premium Home Fool: Ask me a Foolish Question, I'll give you a Foolish Response!Ticker Guide: The Walt Disney Company (DIS), Intuit (INTU), Live Nation (LYV), CME Group (CME), MongoDB (MDB), Trip Advisor (TRIP), Vivendi SA (VIVHY), Mimecast (MIME), Virgin Galactic (SPCE), Axon Technologies (AXON), 51Jobs (JOBS)Disclaimer: This post is non-professional and should not be construed as direct, individual or accurate adviceDisassociation: The views and statements of this post are Fuskie's and are not intended to represent those of The Motley Fool or any other sane bodyDisclosure: May own shares of some, many or all of the companies mentioned in this post: https://tinyurl.com/FuskieDisclosureFool Code of Conduct: https://www.fool.com/legal/the-motley-fools-rules.aspx#Condu...Invitation: You are invited to interactively watch Motley Fool Live online television: https://www.fool.com/premium/live/Call to Action: If you like this or any other post, Rec it.
