Abstract

Diabetes is a debilitating chronic disease that, if not properly managed, can result in various health complications. Individuals must efficiently self-manage the disease in order to mitigate diabetes complications. Individuals who have cognitive limitations are faced with a number of challenges including taking care of their health. For individuals with cognitive limitations, it becomes especially difficult to manage chronic health conditions such as diabetes; thus, it is important to examine disparities in health behavior that prevent diabetes complications among this population of individuals with diabetes who also have a cognitive limitation.
