CARING researchers now published about the risk of colorectal cancer for patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). They found that T2DM was associated with a 1.3-fold increased risk of colorectal cancer (HR 1.26 [95% CI 1.18–1.33]). Among diabetic patients, an increased risk was observed for patients who suffered from obesity for a total duration of 4 years or more.
