We hypothesize that this will not only prevent complications and improve quality of life for T2D patients but also result in increased(More)
AIM Measuring socioeconomic inequalities in health and health care, and understanding determinants of such inequalities, are critical for achieving higher equity in health. Equity in health is a prerequisite for public health and welfare. The aim of the paper is (1) to quantify inequality in diabetes morbidity patterns over patients' entire life span, and(More)
