Abstract Diabetes-related care and complications constitute a significant proportion of the United States' (US) health care expenditure. Of these complications, cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a major component. Higher morbidity and mortality rates translate to higher costs of care in patients with diabetes compared to those who do not have the disease. Minorities bear a disproportionate burden of diabetes and CVD. We review this disparity and examine potential etiologies for it in Hispanics and African-Americans, the two largest minority groups in the US. We examine strategies in these populations that may improve outcomes in diabetes and CVD, potentially decreasing health care costs.
