Add Cancer to Health Risks of Diabetes: Study

, but they didn't note whether or not they had type 1 or type 2 diabetes. However, Lai said that in this population, the majority would have type 2, the more common form. The researchers also were unable to evaluate diabetes management or different medications, as this data wasn't included in the initial study.

After 11 years of follow-up, 55,888 men and 26,364 women had developed cancer.

Dr. Joel Zonszein, director of the clinical diabetes center at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City, agreed that there could be many causes. "There are so many risk factors for cancer. Is it the way they eat, inactivity, socioeconomics? We really don't know what the cause is," he said.

But, he added, "Those with diabetes need to be aware that they are at a higher risk of certain cancers, and they have to be screening for cancer. Also, modifiable risk factors, like smoking, should be stopped."

Lai recommended lifestyle modifications, such as eating a healthful diet and exercising, to prevent diabetes and cancer. "There are a lot of risk factors that are very similar among the two diseases. Maybe avoiding diabetes may be even better for avoiding cancer risk. In general, there are a number of benefits in avoiding diabetes, including the poss
