Summary
"Several studies have shown relationship between excess abdominal fat and increased risk of Type 2 Diabetes (T2D). In Australia, Aboriginals have the propensity for excessive abdominal fat which reflected in their higher waist circumference (WC) compared to non-Aboriginals. Although, studies conducted in some Aboriginal communities have shown WC was a better predictor of T2D compared to body mass index (BMI) and waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), but WC cut-off points for Aboriginals to alert them of the risk of T2D and other chronic diseases have not been established. Prediction models for the risk of diabetes have been developed in a number of populations with the aim of predicting diabetes occurrences, while providing intervention. Indeed, the Australian type 2 diabetes risk assessment tool (AUSDRISK) included WC and ethnicity (Aboriginal or non-Aboriginal) as risk factors for estimating the risk of developing diabetes, suggesting the differences in the effects of WC on diabetes between Aboriginals and other Australians. However, due to low numbers of indigenous Australians in the AUSDRISK study, Aboriginals were grouped with southern Europeans and Asians to generate a high-risk group, which does not give a true representation of the level of diabetic risk among Aboriginals in Australia. In this study, we reported the first 10-year absolute risk estimates of diabetes using WC and age in a remote Australian Aboriginal community. As there are no specific WC cut-off thresholds for Aboriginals in Australia, we categorised WC into gender-specific quartiles for analysis and developed a model using WC and age values. To quantify the impact of WC on the risk of developing diabetes, we developed a simplified tool that can be used by health professional and the general public to understand how diabetes risk varies with WC values. This tool can also be used to educate and alert individuals of the risk of developing diabetes according to WC and age. Furthermore, this tool will also be helpful for the planning and conducting obesity-related health education programs for the prevention and management of T2D in Aboriginal communities in Australia." -- From introducation
