Diabetes Impact on Men
Diabetes is slightly more common in men than in women in across most of ethnic groups, according to the last CDC report, says Dr. Pascual De Santis, Endocrinologist with Baptist Health South Florida, but the difference is very small.
Cathy Clark-Reyes, Registered Dietitian with Baptist Health Primary Care, explains women tend to get on the bandwagon and join the diabetes program and get educated. In these programs, patients receive one-on-one attention and a personalized program.
The implementation of such programs improves outcomes and reduces costs in diabetes management.
