Melbourne: A new study has claimed that diabetics are likely to develop bowel cancer later in life. Researchers, led by the University of Western Australia, have carried out the study which established a significant link between type 2 diabetes and the risk of potentially fatal bowel cancer in men. "On the strength of these results, doctors should consider lowering the screening threshold for these patients," Professor Tim Davis, who led the study, said. The 11-year `Cancer and Diabetes in Australia` Fremantle Diabetes Study involved 1,300 people with type 2 diabetes. While the study revealed an increased risk of all cancers in both men and women with type 2 diabetes, it was the two-fold increase in bowel cancer among men with type 2diabetes that alarmed researchers.
