The purpose of this study is to examine how physical and mental health conditions are associated with insulin intake among Latinx adults. This study was based on a quantitative study of 696 Latinx adults who reside in the state of California. Data were retrieved from the 2017 Adult California Health Interview Survey. The sample consisted of 55.2% female and 44.8% males. The majority were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (n = 564; 81.0%) and reported being overweight or obese (n = 594; 85.3%). Emotional conditions measured were depression and hopelessness. The significant findings the study showed are associations between heart disease, diabetes type, age first told has diabetes, diabetes management plan development with a medical provider, and BMI with insulin intake. In an integrated health setting, these factors are important to keep in mind to close the gap between physical and mental health.
