Lifetime Risk of Diabetes Among First Nations and non-First Nations People

Lifetime Risk of Diabetes Among First Nations and non-First Nations People, 6 pages, Last reviewed December, 2018

This article describes a population-based cohort study investigating the lifetime risk of diabetes in a cohort of 70,631 First Nations persons and 7,732,214 non-First Nations peoples aged 18 years and older in Alberta, Canada. Differences were observed between genders and between geographies. The authors conclude that the observed probabilities suggest that over a quarter of all First Nations men and women will develop diabetes in their lifetime.
