Diabetes less likely to be undiagnosed

Sunday, September 30, 2007

SANTA MONICA, Calif. - Minority men are no longer more likely to have undiagnosed diabetes than white males, says a study released Aug. 13 by the RAND Corporation. Between 1999 and 2002, only 20% of men with diabetes didn't know it, compared to 50% of undiagnosed men 25 years ago. Ethnic disparities dissolved during the same time period, with Hispanics and African-Americans getting diagnosed at the same rate as whites.
