Risk Factors for Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions: Diabetes Hospitalization Among Adults

Risk Factors

Lack of access to preventive health care services, such as routine doctor visits and diabetes education, increases the risk of hospitalization for people with diabetes. Ketoacidosis is one of the most common reasons for hospitalization among the younger population with type 1 diabetes; however, it is also one of the most avoidable. Among older adults, the most common ACS condition is hyperosmolar coma. The risk of hyperosmolar coma increases with age.
