Abstract

Asians have been shown to have a 60% higher prevalence of diabetes than Non-Hispanic Whites (NHWs), with the risk being substantially worse for Asian Indians and Filipinos. The age of diagnosis of diabetes for these subgroups can be a critical indicator of health disparities and may explain the difference in prevalence.
