Type 2 diabetes is associated with higher incidence of several cancers: liver, pancreas, uterus, colo-rectal, breast, and bladder. On a brighter note, diabetics have lower risk of prostate cancer. Now that metformin is the No. 1 recommended drug for type 2 diabetes, perhaps we'll see some changes in cancer rates. This assumes the diabetes dose is the same as the anti-cancer dose. Although metformin is No. 1 recommended, I'm not sure if prescriptions in the U.S. surpass the sulfonylyureas yet. It not, they will soon. -Steve
