Women More Prone to Cancer from Increased Blood Sugar Levels

A Swedish study seems to reveal that increased blood sugar levels in women could lead// to cancer.

Curiously the same does not seem to apply in the case of men.

Dr Par Stattin of Umea University Medical Centre, Sweden and his colleagues had undertaken the study that covered over 65,000 persons.

Writing in the journal Diabetes Care, the researchers say that Type 2 diabetes is associated with an increased risk of liver, pancreas, colon cancer, as well as other cancers.

However, since not much was known of the cancer risk resulting from moderately elevated blood sugar levels among non-diabetics, they had undertaken the research.

And the results showed that in women the total cancer risk increased with rising blood sugar levels. The relative risk of cancer was 26 per cent higher for women with the highest fasting blood sugar compared with women with the lowest fasting blood sugar.

However, there was no significant association between total cancer risk and blood sugar measurements in men.

But before men could heave a sigh of relief, they must note - for both men and women, high fasting GLUCOSE was significantly linked to increased risk of cancer of the pancreas, urinary tract and malignant melanoma.

Blood sugar means glucose and a few other substances in the body like fructose and galactose. On the blood sugar level, women seem to be more vulnerable, but overall the link between abnormal glucose metabolism and cancer seems to have been established.

Hence avoid excessive fat and exercise regularly, you can avoid not just cardiovascular diseases and diabetes but even cancer.
