Diabetes and Cancer: The New Epidemic?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)

Diabetes and Cancer: The New Epidemic?

There was an era where we had deadly infections like plague and polio causing death of thousands of people. We still have occasional outbreak of swine flu, but by and large, infections are quite controlled. The new killer diseases are caused because of the lifestyle we have adapted and the damage we have done to the environment. High intake of processed foods, artificial chemicals in our foods, sedentary lifestyle with very minimal to no physical activity, couching over the computers; the list is quite long.

All these have led to diseases like diabetes and cancer that were not so common about say few decades ago:

Detailed observation has revealed that both these new epidemiologic diseases have a close correlation. There are factors, which induce diabetes and diabetes in turn and in some cases, diabetes inducing agents, can cause cancer also. It has also been observed that mortality is severely increased if diabetic patients are diagnosed with cancer. There are two types of diabetes. While type 1 is mostly hereditary, type 2 is lifestyle induced and the age at which this is being diagnosed is taking a severe plunge. Adolescents and teenagers are being diagnosed for diabetes. Cancer, on the other hand, is of various types (leukaemia, melanoma, myeloma, etc.) and can affect various organs (lung, breast, prostate, stomach, liver, etc.).

The medical community is yet to decipher the disease pattern of both these conditions. While there is no definite correlation between diabetes and all types of cancer, some types of cancer are definitely correlated with a definite reason identified, pancreatic and liver cancer for instance. The high amounts of insulin that diabetic patients are exposed to causes changes in liver and pancreas including fatty liver and cirrhosis, here the incidence of cancer is higher. The linkage is not very clear in lung and intestinal cancers and also there is no link between prostate cancer and diabetes.

Diabetes is considered as a state of chronic inflammation and leads to conditions like hyperinsulinemia (higher levels of insulin in the blood) hyperglycemia (higher levels of sugar in the blood). These are believed to aggravate the neoplastic process of cancer formation, thereby inducing cancer at a greater pace and also increasing the mortality rates.

The following are risk factors that are applicable to both age, physical activity, diet, obesity, drinking and smoking. It is also possible that onset of one can be followed by the other. As noted earlier, more detailed research is awaited to establish a definite linkage, but the correlation cannot be ignored at all.

Both these new epidemics are here to stay and since they have a common set of factors, we need to work on ways to contain them.

My mother has thyroid she is gaining weight due to thyroid what medicine she can take? Please advise.
Hypothyroidism usually lead to weight gain of max 4kg. Weight can be controlled by balanced diet and regular exercise. She might need to take levothyroxine tabs regularly. What is her current weight? what are values of t3 t4 tsh? family history?

Dear Lybrateuser, - Your mothers' blood sugar is in the normal range (70-126 mg/ dl) - to keep the level stable & within normal limits she should have more of fibrous foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, beans, sprouts, also low fat dairy, lean meats, nuts - avoid fried, processed & junk food, also sweets & sugar containing foods - do regular exercises like walking, jogging, swimming, playing games, also include yoga in your schedule daily morning for 10-15 min - keep weight stable - sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night - check blood sugar regularly.

I have thyroid. Taking eltroxin 100 mg everyday Is it safe? what are the side effects of the pills I take.? Last TSH was around 7. 2 months ago Can it be reduced to normal again? what are the ways to reduce Thyroid? Any other precaution / suggestions?

Thyroid level can be reduced and keep in limit by some medicines and diet. Before that you must undergo prakriti parikshan by any ayurvedic doctor to know more about your body and appropriate shodana karma of body. Thyroid can be treated with ayurvedic medicines or can be controlled with higher bodily functions without much medicines. Until then take tab. Raktpachak vati 2 tabs twice a day tab. Arogyavardhini vati 2tabs twice a day.

Hello, Thyroid test should have been done before getting pregnant, According to American Thyroid Association ideally TSH levels should be below 2 mU/L before getting pregnant. During pregnancy levels should be maintained as follows: 1st trimester 0.1 to 2 mU/L, 2nd Trimester 0.3 to 3 mU/L & 3rd 0.3 to 3.1 mU/L. This is absolutely essential because fetal development is affected if the level is higher. The current level is very high. Your gynecologist should have mentioned this to in her briefing. Anyway, if you are not on thyroxine, please start treatment right away. Thanks.

Thanks for the query. Since you are diabetic, it is essential to get appropriately treated. Blood glucose should be maintained - Fasting:< 100 mg, PP :150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. For uterine problem consult your gynecologist. Thanks.

Hi My height is 5.7 inches and my weight is 107kgs. Over weight. Some one advised to check my thyroid levels. T3 and T4 are normal but TSH is <0.01. I tried to test again, report show the same. Can I know more about this.

Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, thyroid report is fine, except that tsh is a bit low. But that does not appear to be the cause of tour being over weight. In fact you are having grade 2 obesity with a bmi of 36.33 kg/m2 (normal <23 kg/m2). Your ideal body weight should be 70 kgs. This needs to taken care, by regular exercise and diet control it is better if you join a gym, and start exercise under the guidance of a qualified instructor, plus regulate the diet. Aim at reduction of 5 to 8 kg of present weight. That will give a considerable relief.
