Background: Whether human insulin may affect lung cancer risk requires investigation. Methods: All patients with a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus from 1996 to 2009 were enrolled from Taiwan's National Health Insurance. An entry date was set on January 1, 2004, and 1,007,617 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus diagnosed before 2004 were followed up for new-onset lung cancer until December 31, 2009. Incidence rates of lung cancer for never-users, ever-users, and tertiles of three dose-response… CONTINUE READING
