Diabetics Face Higher Death Risk After Cancer Surgery
Date:3/29/2010

Study found they were 50% more likely to die in month following operation

MONDAY, March 29 (HealthDay News) -- Type 2 diabetics newly diagnosed with cancer have an increased risk of dying in the month following their cancer surgery, compared to people who are battling cancer alone.

This was particularly true for diabetics with colorectal or esophageal cancers, Johns Hopkins researchers found.

"Diabetes care should be part of cancer care," said Hsin-Chieh "Jessica" Yeh, co-author of a study appearing in the April issue of Diabetes Care. "All the attention was on the cancer treatment and cancer care, and sometimes we overlook or forget about diabetes. This study suggests that diabetes is important for mortality, so it should be taken care of on top of the cancer care."

But Dr. Martin S. Karpeh Jr., chairman of surgery at Beth Israel Medical Center and director of surgical oncology at Continuum Cancer Centers of New York, both in New York City, pointed out that elevated blood sugar levels -- the prime characteristic of diabetes -- is dangerous for people undergoing any type of surgery.

"The findings are completely consistent with other postoperative studies that have been published in recent years. We've known that an elevated blood sugar and diabetes increase the risk of mortality and complications from surgery," he said. "They focused their analysis on cancer, but the same was found in non-cancer so I think the link is more with diabetes and surgery, regardless of what the reason for the surgery is."

The bottom line for people with type 2 diabetes?

"Maintaining good health going into surgery is extremely important," Karpeh said. "We need to emphasize the importance of good overall health. If you are a diabetic, maintaining a good blood sugar will help lower your risks of a bad outcome following any major surgery."
