Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

Lower activity and participation levels in daily occupations contribute to overly high health care utilization (HCU) in adults with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Adults with T2DM who are younger, are a member of a minority group, and have many comorbidities are also at increased risk for higher HCU.
