Colorectal Cancer in Women Linked to High Blood Sugar Levels

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

A new study published in the online edition of the British Journal of Cancer concluded that elevated blood sugar levels are associated with an increase risk of colorectal cancer. Women in the National Institute of Health’s Women’s Health Initiative Study were evaluated for fasting blood sugar and insulin levels before the study as a baseline and several times thereafter over a 12 year period. There were 5,000 women in the study and at the end of the 12 years 81 had developed colorectal cancer. Researchers found that baseline elevated blood sugar levels were associated with an increase colorectal cancer risk. Women in the highest 1/3 of baseline blood sugar levels were almost twice as likely to have developed colorectal cancere as the women at the lowest 1/3 levels. Similar results were found when researchers evaluated repeated blood sugar levels over the time period. There was no association between insulin levels and colorectal risk in the study.
