Risk Factors for Diabetes Hospitalizations

Risk Factors

Many inter-related risk factors contribute to diabetes-related hospitalizations, ranging from individual behaviors to socio-economic and environmental conditions that influence individual behavior. Individual behaviors include inadequate physical activity, poor nutrition/unhealthy eating, and not maintaining a healthy weight. Critical social and environmental factors include poverty, lack of safe public places for physical activity, community norms that do not encourage regular or daily physical activity, schools and work sites that do not actively support healthy behaviors, and healthy food and effective treatments that are not routinely accessible.
