Diabetes among American Indians: Tribes Hope Traditional Methods Can Lead to a Healthier Future.
Pember, Mary Annette
Winds of Change, v17 n3 p20 23 Sum 2002
American Indians are three times more likely than Whites to have type 2 diabetes. Research shows that lifestyle treatments improving diet and increasing exercise are more effective than medications at preventing and treating the disease. A program featuring talking circles and emotional and spiritual counseling by Native elders promotes a controlled diet based on traditional foods and combats fatalism. (TD)
