Approximately 52% of the population residing inDriftpile (Canada Census, 2006) has been screened for diabetesand cardiovascular risk, of whom 34% returned for at least onefollow-up visit. Our purpose was to examine, longitudinally,diabetes-related risk factors among returning individuals.Clinical and anthropometric measurements (blood glucose,hemoglobin A1c, cholesterol, blood pressure, weight, height, bodymass index, waist circumference) were collected for adults andchildren (ages 6-17) without known diabetes, and recorded in aclinical database. A general linear mixed effects model was appliedto get overall trend estimates for each risk factor longitudinally.Among adults (N=91), BMI, cholesterol (total), and blood pressuredid not change, and waist increased significantly. A1c tended toincrease (p-value = 0.05). At baseline 18% of adults tested wereidentified with pre-diabetes (fasting plasma glucose 6.1-6.9mmol/L), and 4% were identified with probable diabetes (FPG>/=7.0 mmol/L) (CDA-CPGs 2008). Among children (N=33): BMIand blood pressure percentiles, A1c and cholesterol (total) allincreased, though only BMI did so significantly.For those who have had at least one follow-up visit, results-over-time are not encouraging. Despite more than seven years ofsurveillance, and numerous prevention and activity initiatives andinfrastructure implemented within the community, the risk fordiabetes does not appear to be decreasing.1Believing we can Reduce Aboriginal Incidence of DiabetesDr. Ellen L.
