Dominance of people who are obese, shame on you! Couldn't you have used a better words. African Americans don't have obesity cornered down. There are a lot of whites who are obese also to a large degree, lets not place our predjudices in our answers please, at least use more appropriate wording.

A middle-aged African-American man with diabetes mellitus is at high risk for cardiovascular disease. It is believed that diabetes is highly prevalent to African American community because of their genetic traits and the dominance of people who are obese. There is evidence showing that a person, regardless of race, sex and age, who has diabetes mellitus (although according to several statistics.

50% to 100% of African Americans are more likely to have diabetes than that of a white person) faces a high risk for cardiovascular disorders such as high blood pressure (hypertension), stroke, congestive heart failure and coronary heart disease. There are many symptoms of diabetes mellitus that you need to watch out for such as weight loss without trying, sores that do not heal quickly, blurry eyesight and being very thirsty.

The incidence of coronary artery disease and hypertension is higher in African Americans than in whites or Asian Americans. Diabetes mellitus increases the risk for hypertension and coronary artery disease in people of any race or ethnicity.
