The article presents a study exploring differences in the self-reported prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and associated risk factors by diabetes status in five ethnic minority groups in Norway compared to ethnic Norwegians. The study found that ethnic differences in the prevalence of CVD were prominent for individuals who were not diabetics.
