Study: Diabetes adds extra cost to hospital stays
Southern California Public Radio

Researchers at UCLA have found that one out of every three hospital beds in California is occupied by a person with diabetes, and that those patients end paying more.

Diabetes is not always the main reason for a hospitalization, but the researchers found that people with diabetes end up paying an average of $2,200 more for their stay in the hospital than people without the disease.
