Symposium Session #115047- The Diabetes-Cancer Connection
Suggested CDR learning codes: 2000, 4000, 4040, 5190; Level 2
A major consensus report and many studies link type 2 diabetes with an increased risk of developing several types of cancer. Some studies raise questions that can be challenging for nutrition professionals to address. This session will provide an overview of the research and examine practical intersections of evidence-based dietary recommendations for diabetes control/prevention and reducing cancer risk. The discussion will include specific food choices and strategies that can be woven together into workable, effective dietary and lifestyle patterns as part of a new paradigm for promoting health.
