All of that causes me stress: an exploration of the sources of stress experienced by Latinxs living with prediabetes.
Latinxs immigrants in the United States experience sources of stress (i.e., stressors) that can limit their ability to engage in healthy behaviors. Stress has been linked to increased type 2 diabetes (T2D) risk in Latinxs living with prediabetes, a group disproportionately affected by T2D. The purpose of this qualitative study was to describe and contextualize the variety of stressors experienced by Latinxs immigrants diagnosed with prediabetes.

Sources of stress among Midwest American Indian adults with type 2 diabetes.
Investigators analyzed focus group transcripts of American Indian adults with type 2 diabetes from five tribal communities and classified stressors using an inductive/deductive analytical approach. They identified poverty, genocide, and colonization as fundamental causes of contemporary stress and health outcomes for American Indians and concluded that stressors are generally experienced as chronic, regardless of the duration of the stressor.
