Purpose:

The purpose of this project is to determine whether a diabetes lifestyle program will improve the lives of Native American people living with diabetes. We recruited Native American people living in 8 Pueblo communities served by 3 Indian Health Service clinics. Forty percent of people living with diabetes in those communities participated in an interview and had height, weight, blood pressure and hemoglobin A1c measured at the beginning. Then they received a lifestyle program in either groups or one-on-one, or another group which got the intervention after one year (comparison group). The program was developed using input from community members, tribal leaders, and clinic staff, and was taught by community members in or near the participating communities. After each session, participants were asked for feedback about the curriculum. After the program ended, the interview and clinical measures were repeated. Feedback to tribal leaders and clinical staff is ongoing.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Male or female 18 years or older with diabetes living in a participating Native American community served by one of three participating Indian Health Service clinics. Exclusion Criteria: - Unable to complete a yearly interviewer administered questionnaire and clinical measures of height, weight, blood pressure, and fingerstick hemoglobin A1c. - Unable to participate in 5 lifestyle intervention meetings occurring over a one year period.
