Abstract

For Latinas with fasting plasma glucose (FPG) levels in the prediabetes and diabetes ranges, early detection can support steps to optimize their health. Data collected in 2009-2010 indicate that 36.7% of Latinas in the United States had elevated FPG levels. Latinas with elevated FPG who were unaware of their diabetes status were significantly less likely than non-Hispanic White and non-Hispanic Black women to have seen a health care provider in the past year (75.8%, 92.9%, and 90.2%, respectively; p = .018). With almost 1 million Latinas in the United States with elevated FPG unaware of their diabetes risk, and less likely than other at-risk women to see health care providers, there is an urgent need to establish alternate sites of opportunity for their diabetes screening. En las mujeres latinas con niveles plasmáticos de glucosa en ayunas (NPGA) correspondientes a prediabetes y diabetes, la detección temprana es un aspecto componente fundamental para la buena salud. Datos obtenidos entre los años 2009-2010 indican que un 36.7% de las mujeres Latinas en los Estados Unidos tenían NPGA elevados. Las mujeres Latinas con NPGA elevados que no sabían que tenían diabetes fueron significativamente menos que las mujeres blancas y negras no hispanas que habían visitado a un proveedor de salud en el último año (75.8%, 92% y 90.2% respectivamente; p = .018). Alrededor de un millón de Latinas en los Estados Unidos con NPGA elevados no conocen su riesgo de diabetes y tienen menos probabilidades que otras mujeres a riesgo de diabetes de visitar a un proveedor de salud. En consecuencia, es urgente establecer lugares alternos donde se puedan realizar exámenes para detectar diabetes.
