​The 2009 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) data was used to examine associations of bodyweight, lifestyles, and demographic variables with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and heart disease among foreign-born older Vietnamese adults.

The authors found that in this sample of Vietnamese Americans aged 50 to 85, individuals aged 65 and older reported more type 2 diabetes and heart disease than their younger counterparts (50ñ64). They also found that older Vietnamese women had a lower prevalence of type 2 diabetes than older Vietnamese men.

The findings showed significant interaction effect of alcohol consumption and psychological distress with T2DM. The interaction of vegetable consumption, poverty, and length of living in the U.S. was significantly associated with heart disease.
