Social determinants of health likely play a significant role in the development of type 2 diabetes for women in vulnerable communities.

However, older diabetes mellitus patients are very heterogeneous in their clinical characteristics, diabetes mellitus-related complications and age at disease onset. This study aimed to evaluate the all-cause mortality rates and adverse health outcomes among older adults with new-onset diabetes mel...

The disease-induced psychological distress experienced by this population not only decreases quality of life but also increases demand for healthcare. The healthcare policy for the disabled population currently focuses on community healthcare. Therefore, developing appropriate programs to promote mental health among the disabled population in ...

Background: Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) helps to improve glycemic control and empowerment of people with diabetes. It is particularly useful for people with diabetes who are using insulin as it facilitates insulin titration and detection of hypoglycemia. Despite this, the uptake of SMBG remains low in many countries, including Malaysia. Purpose: This study aimed to explore the barriers and facilitators to SMBG, in people with type 2 diabetes using insulin. Patients and methods: Quali...

Many countries have implemented pay-for-performance programs to improve the quality of care. The structure of these programs, however, can have perverse consequences beyond improving care for patients. To investigate this possibility, we studied the pattern of enrollment of patients with diabetes in the first five years of a pay-for-performance program in Taiwan’s National Health Insurance Program from 2001 through 2005. Taiwan’s program did sharply improve quality of care for enrolled patients,...
