Racial/Ethnic Disparities in Stroke-Prevention Among Patients Undergoing Dialysis
American Society of Nephrology (ASN)

• Among patients with kidney failure and atrial fibrillation, Black, Hispanic White, and Asian patients filled prescriptions of stroke-preventive medications less often than non-Hispanic White patients, and they were more likely to experience stroke. • Equalizing the distribution of these medications would prevent 7%–12% of the stroke disparity among racial/ethnic minorities.

The potentially deadly paradox of diabetes management
Mayo Clinic

Diabetes affects nearly 1 in 10 adults in the U.S., of these millions, more than 90% have Type 2 diabetes. Controlling blood sugar and glycosylated hemoglobin levels ― or HbA1c, which is sometimes referred to as A1C ― is key to diabetes management and necessary to prevent its immediate and long-term complications. However, new Mayo Clinic research shows that diabetes management may be dangerously misaligned.
