An Aboriginal-driven program to prevent, control and manage nutrition-related "lifestyle" diseases including diabetes.

After several months of the program's operation, there have been positive changes in knowledge about food, nutrition, exercise and disease and altered attitudes and behaviours related to dietary and exercise patterns, and improvements in weight control and in pathology test results relevant to the risk of subsequent development of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Indigenous Health and Socioeconomic Status in India

Socioeconomic status differentials substantially account for the health inequalities between indigenous and non-indigenous groups in India, and a strong socioeconomic gradient in health is also evident within indigenous populations, reiterating the overall importance of socioeconomic status for reducing population-level health disparities.

Risk factors for ill-health in a remote desert-dwelling aboriginal community in Western Australia.

Increased cardiovascular risk, nutritional disorders, renal disease and infections are major problems in this community which had relocated several years previously from a mission environment closer to western influences, including alcohol.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus in Canada's first nations: status of an epidemic in progress.

The epidemic of type 2 diabetes mellitus in Canada's First Nations is still on the upswing, with a trend toward earlier age at onset, and genetic-environmental interactions are the likely cause.

Kidney disease among the indigenous peoples of Oceania.

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.
