Diabetic cancer patients at higher risk of death
Diabetic cancer patients at higher risk of death (March 17, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Denmark - A new report published in Diabetologia finds that cancer patients with diabetes are at significant increased risk of death. Researchers studied all cancer patients in Denmark who were diagnosed from during 1995-2009. Participants were categorized as either having diabetes treated with insulin, diabetes treated with oral hypoglycaemic agents, diabetes not treated, or no diabetes at all. Results showed that those who had diabetes and were being treated with insulin were at 4x increased risk of dying when compared to those without diabetes.
