Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements has commented on a recent study that shows the shocking tie between diabetes and cancer.
According to a recent medical report published in the journal BMC Public Health, the chances of cancer development may be higher among individuals with type 2 diabetes, prompting additional management schemes that may help in decreasing cancer risk. The report described the results of a study that involved screening diseases registries in a population in the Zhejiang province of China from 2002 to 2008.
Two disease registries were reviewed, namely the Diabetic Surveillance Registry and the Cancer Registry of the city. The investigators conducted this study to determine whether the incidence of cancer and cancer risk was higher among individuals who were previously diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
The results of the study showed that the incidence of cancer was indeed much higher among patients listed in the Cancer Registry. In addition, the report also showed that pancreatic cancer was the most common type of cancer that afflicted type 2 diabetes patients. Interestingly, the reported also showed that certain types of cancer are more common in particular genders. For example, cancer development in the liver and kidney were more common among male type 2 diabetes patients, whereas breast cancer and leukemia were observed to occur at a higher incidence among female type 2 diabetes patients.
This recent medical report serves as a large-scale investigation that attempted to establish the relationship between type 2 diabetes and cancer development and cancer risk. Reviewing the medical registries of the city may be the initial step to fully determine the extent of cancer risk in this specific population.
Although previous studies have suggested the link between cancer development and type 2 diabetes, these earlier reports have not directly assessed its relationship using a significantly large population. According to the medical report, almost 8,000 type 2 diabetes patients were listed in the Diabetes Surveillance Registry and these individuals were checked against the Cancer Registry for a span of six years. The simple enlistment of a type 2 diabetes patients in the Cancer Registry was considered as direct information on cancer development and cancer risk.
Spokesperson for Bel Marra Health Dr. Victor Marchione says, “Cancer development is triggered by the abnormal division of cells of a specific organ of the body that often results in the generation of a tumor. In other cases of cancer development, cells may migrate to other areas of the body, which may induce further proliferation.”
Cancer development has been associated with incurred mutations in cells that activate cellular activities that were initially quiescent. Physicians and scientists recognize that leading a healthy lifestyle, including consuming fruits and vegetables, may decrease cancer risk. Avoiding smoking and consumption of alcoholic beverages may also prevent cancer development.
CEO of Bel Marra Health Jim Chiang says, “Cancer risk may also be decreased by regular exercise and getting enough sleep. Health management for individuals with type 2 diabetes may be challenging enough and lowering one’s cancer risk may prevent further complications to one’s life.”
