More than one in three patients in San Joaquin Valley hospitals has diabetes, according to a study released Thursday.

Health professionals in the Valley said the study by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research confirms what they already know: Diabetes is epidemic here and in the state. “When I do admissions at the hospital, I would say virtually every other patient has diabetes,” said Dr. Kirnan Reddy, a Fresno internist.
