Overview

I Can Lower My Risk For Type 2 Diabetes: A Guide for American Indians by National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse, Donald K. Warne M.D

A devastating change diabetes has caused among American Indians. American Indians are more than twice as likely to develop diabetes than the rest of the U.S. population, and they are more likely to develop complications of diabetes once they have the disease.

Despite these higher risks, Indian communities can work toward preventing diabetes with modest lifestyle changes. For years, it is assumed that losing weight and exercising will lower risk of developing diabetes. With the results of the Diabetes Prevention Program, they have not only confirmed that it is true, but they now know that the changes needed to reduce the risk of diabetes are not as big as thought. We do not have to completely return to the lifestyle of our ancestors to prevent diabetes. We can take small steps toward achieving big rewards. This book will be your guide about diabetes.
