Health Care System Factors for Diabetes Hospitalizations

Health Care System Factors

Effective treatment, nutritional counseling, diabetes self-management education and medical supplies for self-management that are affordable and accessible, near where people live or work, are crucial to preventing hospitalization. These may be delivered in clinical and/or community settings. Lack of or inadequate health insurance coverage or the fact that some support services are not reimbursable, are major barriers to many of these services. Active support from medical providers, families, and communities around healthy eating and adequate physical activity helps individuals with diabetes to stay healthier longer.
