Decreased incidence of end-stage renal disease in American Indians with diabetes: a model for other high-risk populations?

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Indigenous populations in North America have very high rates of diabetes and diabetic complications, including end-stage renal disease. A promising new report demonstrates a substantial decline in the incidence of diabetic end-stage renal disease among American Indians and Alaska Natives, coinciding with a public health intervention targeting diabetes management in this population. This success may offer a model for interventions to improve kidney disease outcomes in other high-risk populations.
