Health Care System Factors for Deaths due to Diabetes as Underlying Cause

Health Care System Factors

Regular check-ups and laboratory exams are essential for detecting early signs of complications. With adequate preventive care and regular routine physician visits, some diabetes deaths could be prevented. Many diabetes-related problems, such as hypertension and early end-stage renal disease, go undetected and are diagnosed only after serious complications have developed. This issue is particularly pronounced among people without insurance who often do not have the resources to seek regular, routine care for their diabetes.
