Race Disparities in the Use of Prevention, Screening, and Monitoring Services in Michigan Medicare Beneficiaries With Type 2 Diabetes and Combinations of Multiple Chronic Conditions

Diabetic Ketoacidosis in a Type 2 Diabetes Patient After Initiation of Over-the-Counter Weight Loss Medications: A Cautionary Tale

AbstractPeople with diabetes need routine health care to prevent potential exacerbations of diabetes and detect or prevent the development of additional chronic conditions that can worsen the course of diabetes. Using 2012 Medicare claims data from the State of Michigan for 443,932 beneficiaries with type 2 diabetes, we determined that there are differences between white and racial/ethnic minority people with diabetes in accessing any preventive care and in the amount of service used once they do access care, even after adjusting for the presence of multiple chronic conditions.© 2020 by the American Diabetes Association
