Abstract

Purpose

To assess the association between diabetes mellitus (DM) and the incidence of cancer at different sites.

Methods

Data from the baseline and first three follow-up visits of the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study, an ongoing cohort study of adults from four American communities, were used in this study. Of 15,792 persons aged 45–64 years old who participated in the baseline visit, the data of 15,118 participants were available for this study. For each cancer site, a conditional stratified Poisson regression model was fitted to estimate the adjusted relative rate and 95% confidence interval (adj. RR, 95% CI) of its incidence in diabetics compared to non-diabetics.

Results

We excluded 850 participants with a history of cancer at baseline and 149 participants who developed cancer during 2 years after enrollment, leaving a total of 14,119 participants of whom 1721 were diabetics. Independent of age, body mass index, alcohol consumption, and physical activity, DM decreased the risk of all cancers combined (adj. RR: 0.77, 95% CI: 0.60, 0.98) and the risk of prostate cancer (adj. RR: 0.51, 95% CI: 0.27, 0.97) and increased the risk of colorectal cancer in non-menopausal women (adj. RR: 12.08, 95% CI: 2.06, 70.94).

Conclusions

In conclusion, DM may be associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer in non-menopausal women and a decreased risk of prostate cancer and all cancers combined.
