High Blood Sugar Bad for Leukemia
The Cancer Blog passes on research linking high blood sugar with increased mortality in leukemia patients:
High blood sugar levels increase the rate of in-hospital deaths by almost 40 percent in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), according to a study published in Cancer and led by Dr. Naeem Ali and colleagues at Ohio State. This effect was seen even in patients with mild increases in blood sugar levels.The Diabetes Blog also had an interesting post on blood sugar and cancer a few months ago.
The risk of developing sepsis was increased among such patients with hyperglycemia, according to the team, however, sepsis alone did not explain the relationship between the high blood sugar and increased mortality risk.
