Research output: Book/ReportOther reportpeer-review


* In 76% of studies that reported sex-specific data (19 of 25 studies), Indigenous women had higher T2D prevalence than Indigenous men. In a few examples, T2D prevalence among Indigenous women was more than double the prevalence among Indigenous men.
* There is variability in T2D prevalence geographically by Indigenous Nation and across time periods. Approximately 70% of all studies reviewed reported T2D prevalence over 10%.
* Recent T2D prevalence data are sparse when considering the vast number of Indigenous Peoples across the globe. This review only represents 16 out of 90 countries with known Indigenous populations.
