Tuoreen tutkimuksen mukaan tyypin 2 diabetes nostaa riskiä sairastua niin "lihavuuteen liitettyihin" kuin muihinkin syöpiin. Ihmekö tuo, jos kerran hyperinsulinemia on syövän riskitekijä.https://www.dietdoctor.com/more-bad-new ... h-diabetes
Once again, that makes sense. Regardless of weight, chronic hyperinsulinemia and elevated glucose likely contribute to cancer cell growth, and elevated levels of IGF-1 may also serve as a cancer growth factor. These metabolic factors can be present even in normal weight individuals.
While this sounds like terribly depressing news, it may actually have a silver lining. If hyperglycemia, elevated insulin levels, and elevated IGF-1 contribute to cancer mortality, then measures that reduce those levels should likewise reduce the risk of dying. This is the rationale for treating cancer patients with keto nutrition and intermittent fasting. Now there is an even greater urgency to reverse diabetes with LCHF nutrition: to lower a patient’s risk of cancer mortality.
