Diabetes is an Aboriginal Problem
Diabetes is an Epidemic in Aboriginal Populations The national age-adjusted prevalence is 2.5 to 5 times higher than that of the general population. Age-adjusted prevalence rates as high as 26% have been found in individual communities. Aboriginal peoples are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at a much younger age, with high rates of diabetes in children and adolescents. Dyck R, et al. CMAJ. 2010; 182(3): Green C, et al.

Higher Rates of Complications in First Nations Peoples With Diabetes ComplicationFirst Nations population with type 2 diabetes in 19 communities (2007) 1) General population with type 2 diabetes in family practice setting ( ) (2) Age at audit Chronic kidney disease Depression Neuropathy Retinopathy Diabetic foot disease Number of diabetes-related health visits Compared with the general population with type 2 diabetes, First Nations peoples with diabetes are younger, yet have higher rates of many of the serious complications of diabetes. This higher morbidity is reflected in double the number of diabetes-related health visits in First Nations than in the general population with type 2 diabetes. 1.Harris SB, et al.

High Rates of GDM in Aboriginal Women PopulationPrevalence (%) Non-Aboriginal0.5 First Nations4.8 Inuit4.0 Métis2.2 Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is defined as diabetes with onset or first recognition during pregnancy. It is a risk factor for later development of type 2 diabetes in the mother, as well as in the offspring. Garnier R, et al. Statistics Canada Health Analysis Division; Ottawa, ON: PHAC.

Increased Prevalence of Diabetes in Pregnancy and Adverse Outcomes Liu S, et al. Diabetic Med. 2012: [Epub ahead of print] Compared to non-FN women, FN women on- reserve in Ontario had: –Higher prevalence of diabetes in pregnancy –Less preconception/antenatal care –Less postpartum care –Higher mean birth weight and rate of macrosomia –Higher rates of pre-term delivery, jaundice, neonatal hypoglycemia, shoulder dystocia –Less primary care after birth
Aboriginal Population Growth Type 2 diabetes has reached epidemic proportions among Canadian Aboriginal peoples. The national age-adjusted prevalence is 2.5 to 5 times higher than that of the general population, and age-adjusted prevalence rates as high as 26% have been found in individual communities. 1-3 Aboriginal peoples are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at a much younger age, with high rates of diabetes in children and adolescents. 4 Due primarily to a high birth rate, from 1996 to 2003, the Aboriginal population grew by 45%, nearly 6 times the growth rate of non-Aboriginals Dyck R, et al.

Diabetes Surveillance System for First Nations Communities The First Nations Diabetes Surveillance System is a web-based surveillance application that will track type 2 diabetes and complication rates over time in First Nations communities. This information will allow the monitoring of the diabetes burden in each partnering community and can be used to inform and evaluate new quality improvement initiatives in communities. The goal of the Surveillance System is to monitor and track diabetes rates so that informed decisions can be made to improve community care. First Nations Surveillance System Newsletter. November 2010.
Diabetes Surveillance System for First Nations Communities Similar programs in Aboriginal settings in the United States and Australia have been associated with sustained improvements in quality of care for people diagnosed with diabetes. Although this program is currently a 2-year pilot program, it is hoped that in the future the system will be expanded to include other communities, and that ongoing financial support will help sustain the program. The Surveillance System has been generously funded by the Aboriginal Diabetes Initiative, First Nations and Inuit Health Branch at Health Canada. First Nations Surveillance System Newsletter.
