Diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance among the inuit population of Greenland


Diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance among the inuit population of Greenland



Diabetes Care 25(10): 1766-1771



ISSN/ISBN: 0149-5992

PMID: 12351475

DOI: 10.2337/diacare.25.10.1766

Objective: To assess the prevalence of diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) among the Inuit population of Greenland and to determine risk factors for developing glucose intolerance. Research Design and Methods: This cross-sectional study included 917 randomly selected adult Inuit subjects living in three areas of Greenland. Diabetes and IGT were diagnosed using the oral glucose tolerance test. BMI and waist-to-hip ratio were measured and blood samples were taken from each subject.
