Data on 500 cancer patients showed that those with pancreatic cancer had a higher prevalence of new-onset diabetes compared with cancer-free controls and patients with other forms of cancer. "Our results lend further credence to the hypothesis that new-onset DM is indeed unique to PaC and is relatively uncommon in other patients with cancers and those without cancer, suggesting that it is not merely a reflection of an increased risk of PaC in patients with DM, but rather an early manifestation of the cancer," researchers wrote in the journal Pancreas.
