Patients with diabetes are ‘up to 31 per cent more at risk of cancer’

Researches from Sweden and Manchester warned that diabetics are at a higher risk of developing cancer, and once they do they have far worse survival chance. For men the risk increases by 22%.

Authors: Hashimoto N, Nagano H, Tanaka T Abstract The tumor suppressor gene p53 is mutated in approximately more than 50% of human cancers. p53 is also referred to as the "cellular gatekeeper" or "guardian of the genome" because it protects the body from spreading mutated genome induced by various stress. When the cells receives stimuli such as DNA damage, oncogene activation, oxidative stress or undernutrition, p53 gives rise to a number of cellular responses, including cell cycle arrest, apoptosis, cellular senescence and metabolic adaptation. Related to energy metabolisms, it has been reporte...

  So you kiss all things wheat and grains goodbye. And you’ve come to learn that gluten-free foods made with replacement flours like cornstarch, tapioca starch, potato flour, and rice starch are incredibly unhealthy, since they make visceral fat grow, send blood sugar through the roof, and contribute to diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and dementia. But perhaps you’d sure like a few muffins or cookies once in a while . . . without paying the health price that follows wheat and grain consumption such as high blood sugar, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune conditions, acid reflux,...

AbstractCulinary herbs and spices have been used as both food flavoring and food preservative agents for centuries. Moreover, due to their known and presumptive health benefits, herbs and spices have also been used in medical practices since ancient times. Some of the health effects attributed to herbs and spices include antioxidant, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory effects as well as potential protection against cardiovascular disease, neurodegeneration, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. While interest in herbs and spices as medicinal agents remains high and their use in foods continues to grow, there have been remarkably...

The objective of treatment for DM is to inhibit mortality and difficulties through normalizing blood glucose stage. Genistein, a naturally available soy isoflavone, is accounted for to have various medical advantages credited to numerous natural capacities. In the course of recent years, various examinations have shown that genistein has hostile to diabetic impacts, specifically, direct consequences for β-cell expansion, glucose-triggered insulin discharge, and safety towards apoptosis, unbiased of its functions as an estrogen receptor agonist, cancer prevention agent, or tyrosine kinase inhibitor. The present evaluat...

Glomerular diseases (GDs) impose a substantial burden on patients and health systems, and they are a major cause of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) worldwide.1 The causes and clinical features of GD are diverse, yet as a group they share many symptoms, treatments, and outcomes (Table  1). Patients with primary and secondary GDs have mortality rates 2.7- and 3.9-fold higher than the general population, respectively, higher rates of cardiovascular events, and they report impaired quality of life.1 Treatment side effects may include diabetes, poor bone health, obesity, infection, reduced fertility, and cancer, and also a...

...Developing dementia doesn’t take away your individuality or humanity any more than developing cancer or diabetes. Therefore, rather than concentrate only on drugs, we need to help caregivers – and yes professionals – better understand how to help people living with dementia cope with the negative aspects of their illness so that they can live the best life that they can.

CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest a reduced susceptibility to develop cancers, mostly of endodermal origin (stomach, colon and liver), but not of ectodermal/mesodermal origin, in carriers of G6PD deficiency. The effects of G6PD deficiency on carcinogenesis need further studies to better understand how cancer cells originating from different germ layers use pentose phosphate pathway to proliferate.
