Summary
Discusses a study undertaken to determine the age and sex-specific prevalence of diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and coronary heart disease risk factors in remote Aboriginal communities northeast of Alice Springs, NT, where participants maintain some degree of traditional lifestyle; results suggest that while there was a high prevalence of IGT and diabetes, a decentralised mode of living as opposed to more urbanised lifestyles lowered the levels of glucose intolerance; results also found a high prevalence of smoking in men indicated a high-risk profile for coronary heart disease
