Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet abstract

This resource examines the relationships between birthweight, current size, and fasting glucose and fasting insulin levels in Indigenous adolescents to record the impact of birthweight on future risk of type 2 diabetes. The data relates to a longitudinal study of a Northern Territory (NT) Indigenous birth cohort of 686 Aboriginal babies born at the Royal Darwin Hospital between January 1987 and March 1990, and followed up between December 2006 and January 2008 in over 40 NT locations.
