IDF Atlas Reports: Type 2 diabetes among Indigenous Peoples under the age of 30

Research output: Book/ReportOther reportpeer-review

Abstract

* There were only a few studies reporting T2D prevalence among Indigenous children and adolescents.
* T2D is uncommon in children under 10 years and prevalence increases with age. Very high prevalence is reported in Central Australia (31.1 per 1,000), Torres Strait Islands (21 per 1,000) and the Great Plains region in the US (10 per 1,000).
* Detailed prevalence data across age ranges that approximate pre-, peri- and post-pubertal phases is required to track age- and sex-specific diabetes prevalence over time.
