Exercise 2.4


The social determinants of health that should be addressed in relation to risk or incidence of diabetes include education, income, access to nutritious foods, access to healthcare services, and physical exercise programs, and lifestyle factors (Hill-Briggs et al., 2020). A high level of education is associated with high literacy levels. The opposite is true. Thus, people with high education levels understand better and practice healthy lifestyles such as healthy diet, stress management, and physical exercise and thus, lower risks and incidences of diabetes. Populations with low income have low access to nutritious foods and physical exercises as they are costly.
