Risk Factors for Diabetes Deaths

Risk Factors

Many interconnected risk factors contribute to diabetes-related deaths in complex ways. They range from the environmental context/population-based determinants of health such as poverty or living/working in certain geographic areas, to behaviors related to disease management. It must be noted that personal behaviors are strongly dependent on the broader environmental context mentioned above. For example, it is difficult to eat a nutritious diet if one doesn't have access to affordable healthy foods.
