How can diabetes be prevented?

Article by Karmeen D. Kulkarni, MS,RD, BC-ADM, CDE, Food, Culture, and Diabetes in the United States, Volume 22, Number 4, 2004, Clinical Diabetes.

Karmeen Kulkarni includes Latina women as being among the at-risk population for Type II diabetes. Problems with overeating, which affect the entire American culture at large, are also true among Latinos.

In contrast to other ethnic groups, the Mexican population normally includes a diet of foods which produce type II Diabetes. The fact that many Latinos also enjoy-fast food only makes the problem more serious. Parts of the traditional diet are healthy and should be maintained; parts which are unhealthy should be addressed in terms understandable to the common Latina.
