Running Head: DIABETES AMONG HISPANICS

Diabetes among Hispanics

Going by recent reports, the rate of death in the United States among the Hispanic community is comparatively lower than that of their Whites counterparts. The difference in this rate is in the margins of two digits’ percent. However, while this case is good news for the Hispanic folks, there is a troubling observation among the number of death rate resulting from diabetes and weight related health issues among the Hispanics. Records indicate that more Hispanics suffer from diabetes related problems than Whites. All the same, it is worth noting that the degree of suffering varied from one Hispanic sub set to another. Often, the number of incidences were dependent on where the come from originally.

Diabetes among Hispanics is a unique problem due to the diverse social cultural background of this population. Consider, for example, Hispanics of Mexican descent are somewhat different from Hispanics of Cuban or Columbian descent (Schneiderman et al., 2014). Often, these differences manifest themselves in terms of cultural differences. All the same, the differences are not overwhelmingly unique in a way that overhauls the underlying common cultural background among all Hispanics that sets them apart as unique population. For instance, there are borderline similarities in the choice of cuisine among the Hispanic community. Similarly, there is a tendency of the female folk being dependent of the male folk among Hispanic folks (Schneiderman et al., 2014). As such, most of the family member health conditions are often not made independently hence causing leading to the possibility of members of the family, especially women not being always proactive.

Given this background, other social factors characteristic of the Hispanic community coalesces to worsen the situation. For example, a significant percentage of the Hispanic community falls below the middle class level. Coupled with few descent employment opportunities, this means that most of the bread winners in Hispanic families have to work for long hours, often working multiple jobs a day. This situation means that they are less likely to find the time and the money to prepare health meals. Similarly, they are also less likely to find the time to exercise.

Another factor leading to weight gain and diabetes prevalence among the Hispanic folk is the comparatively lower level of literacy among the Hispanic community. Given the shaky financial background coupled with the fact that most of the Hispanic community constitute of an immigrant population, most individuals are often ignorant of the risk they could be facing. Another aspect adding to this problem is
