The possibility that diabetes is associated with an elevated risk of cancer mortality has been discussed for many years.
Recently, Levine et al. (Am J Epidemiol,1990; 131:254-62) approached this issue by relating post-load plasma glucose concentration to cancer mortality.
For men, there appeared to be a positive association between post-load glucose and mortality from cancer for all sites combined and for some specific sites.
However, that analysis was based on only 298 cancer deaths among 11,521 men followed for 12 years.
