Prediabetes increases cancer risk: study

Researchers reviewed 16 studies that included nearly 900,000 people from around the world and found that people with prediabetes had a 15% overall increased risk of cancer.

The condition was significantly associated with increased risks of cancer of the stomach/colorectum (relative risk, RR 1.55), liver (RR 2.01), pancreas (RR 1.19), breast (RR 1.19) and endometrium (RR 1.60).
