High Blood Sugar Linked to Cancer

Women with high blood-sugar levels face a greater danger of developing cancer than men, according to new research.
 
High blood sugar is a classic symptom of PCOS-linked pre-diabetes. The latter condition, which is reversible, can develop from unhealthy diets containing excess sugar, salt or fat and is linked to a range of different cancers in each gender.
 
Swedish scientists funded by the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) examined blood sugar levels in 274,126 men and 275,818 women from Norway, Austria and Sweden with an average age of 44.8. They then followed up a decade later to see how many had developed or died from cancer.
 
Their report said: “Significant increases in risk among men were found for … cancer of the liver, gallbladder and respiratory tract, for … thyroid cancer and multiple myeloma and for … rectal cancer. In women, significant associations were found for … cancer of the pancreas … urinary bladder cancer and for cancer of the uterine corpus, cervix uteri and stomach.”
 
Lead researcher Dr Tanja Stock added: “The results suggest that, for women, the higher the level of sugar in the blood, the higher the risk. For men, there was still an association, but it was weaker.”
