  • OBJECTIVE To investigate whether hyperglycemia is associated with increased cancer risk. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In the Västerbotten Intervention Project of northern Sweden, fasting and postload plasma glucose concentrations were available for 33,293 women and 31,304 men and 2,478 incident cases of cancer were identified. Relative risk (RR) of cancer for levels of fasting and postload glucose was calculated with the use of Poisson models, with adjustment for age, year of recruitment… CONTINUE READING
