ABSTRACT
The article discusses the studies indicating the prevalence of clinical depressive symptoms in Hispanic/Latino residents with type 2 diabetes. Research suggests that low access to education affects health literacy and English proficiency in Hispanic patients with type 2 diabetes, leading to distress and meager diabetes self-care. The article concludes that The American Diabetes Association (ADA) provides the tools for fighting diabetes for Hispanic communities living with diabetes condition.
