Objectives. Until recently it has been a widely accepted opinion that the incidence of diabetes among Inuit in Greenland was low. More recent studies from Canada and Alaska have demonstrated that diabetes is increasingly common among Inuit, similar to global trends for indigenous people, and genetic studies have indicated that the Inuit may have an increased risk of developing diabetes and insulin resistance related disease. This was the background for the initiation of the Greenland Population Study, which was the first population-based study in Greenland where all participants received an oral glucose tolerance test. The thesis attempts to describe the prevalence of diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance and the concomitant metabolic risk among Greenland Inuit.(Int J Circumpolar Health 2004; 63(3):286-288)
