Findings at the national level included :
* One in ten(11.1%) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults had diabetes. This comprised 9.6% with diagnosed diabetes and 1.5% with diabetes newly diagnosed from their test results.
* A further 4.7% were at high risk of diabetes according to their blood test results.
* Two in three (65.3%) had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease, that is, they were taking cholesterol-lowering medication or had one or more of high total cholesterol, lower than normal levels of HDL (good) cholesterol, high LDL (bad) cholesterol or high triglycerides.
* Nearly one in five (17.9%) had signs of chronic kidney disease.
Disease indicators more than doubled for Indigenous Australians living in remote areas.
