This presentation explores: 1) association between cancer & diabetes, 2) diet & lifestyle recommendations to reduce cancer risk, 3) nutritional recommendations for dm to improve glucose control & health outcomes while being treated for cancer, and 4) pharmaceutical management of glucose in relation to cancer and cancer treatment.
