Diabetes prevalence and complications rates were examined for the indigenous population of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands in the western Pacific. Diabetes is common, with 4% of the population and 11% of adults having diagnosed diabetes. Diabetes is more common among females and islanders of Carolinian descent End stage renal disease, hospitalizations for pneumonia, non-traumatic lower extremity amputations and retinopathy are more common than expected (with relative risks of 3… Expand
Kidney disease among the indigenous peoples of Oceania.
TLDR
Despite the high incidence of kidney failure among indigenous people, few receive kidney transplants, and geographic and economic constraints limit the availability of dialysis treatment, clinical management should emphasize prevention, screening, and early intervention. Expand

Diabetic end‐stage renal disease in the indigenous population of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands
TLDR
Considerable improvement in survival after the onset of haemodialysis has occurred over the past 21 years, and the number of diabetic patients in CNMI who are receiving renal replacement therapy is rising rapidly. Expand
Global complication rates of type 2 diabetes in Indigenous peoples: A comprehensive review.
TLDR
A systematic review of T2DM complications in Indigenous populations worldwide revealed a disproportionate burden of disease complications among all Indigenous peoples regardless of their geographic location. Expand
The current state of Indigenous and Aboriginal women with diabetes in pregnancy: a systematic review.
TLDR
Correcting the health disparity for Indigenous and Aboriginal women with DIP is a health priority as inconsistent study design without robust data is interfering with accurate prevalence of DIP. Expand
Validation of the Diabetes Distress Scale in an Asian Pacific Islander Population.
TLDR
The positive correlation with hemoglobin A1c suggests that addressing DD may improve glycemic control and vice versa, and Clinicians with limited time may consider using the DDS2 rather than DDS17 to quickly screen the API population for DD. Expand
Medicine in the 21st century: towards a Darwinian medical epistemology.
TLDR
This review aims at making clear how evolution by natural selection is relevant to medicine, and observations as to the epistemological value of evolutionary theory as a heuristic tool for articulating a medical paradigm in accord with modern biology. Expand

Factors associated with the development of diabetes in the Micronesian population of Nauru.
TLDR
A longitudinal study of 266 adult residents of the Pacific Island of Nauru has shown an annual incidence of noninsulin-dependent diabetes, and the two-hour, post-load plasma glucose concentration was the factor most consistently associated with subsequent glucose intolerance. Expand
Global Estimates for Prevalence of Diabetes Mellitus and Impaired Glucose Tolerance in Adults
TLDR
Diabetes in adults is now a global health problem, and populations of developing countries, minority groups, and disadvantaged communities in industrialized countries now face the greatest risk. Expand
The influence of variation in obesity in the sex difference in the prevalence of abnormal glucose tolerance in Tuvalu.
TLDR
Differences in the extent of obesity in the male and female population of Tuvalu explain part (but not all) of the differences in prevalence of impaired glucose tolerance in Funafutians. Expand
Societies in transition: mortality patterns in Pacific Island populations.
TLDR
The 22 Pacific Island countries and territories are in a state of demographic and epidemiological transition and the phosphate-rich island of Nauru presents an atypical picture with considerable adult male mortality from diseases associated with modernization. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that a substantial proportion of abnormal glucose tolerance during pregnancy will go undetected in the absence of screening programmes, and an international study is required to define the risk to the mother and the fetus of various levels of glucose intolerance. Expand
The pathogenesis of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
Much has been learned during the past decade about the underlying genetics, natural history, and pathogenesis of IDDM, and some of this new information is described to be used to prevent the disease. Expand
