Urban Diabetes Care and Outcomes Summary Report, Audit Years 2010–2014: Aggregate Results from Urban Indian Health Organizations

Urban Indian Health Institute, March 2015

Diabetes Mellitus is a major public health problem among American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs), and the prevalence of diabetes among AI/AN adults is twice that of non-Hispanic white adults.
