|Title:||Diabetes and its effect on the life expectancy of Indigenous Australians|
Indigenous Heath Studies
|Abstract:||It has been established that diabetes does have an effect and impacts greatly on the life expectancy of Indigenous Australians. A possible explanation is that Indigenous Australians generally have different needs, primarily because of the variation in culture differences. For this reason it is imperative that health officials have an understanding of these additional pre-disposing factors and the associated complications which have resulted as a part of the colonisation process. These factors including diet, nutrition, exercise, obesity and have influenced and resulted, in a change to the way of life for many Indigenous Australians, primarily from a traditional to modern diet.|
