Diabetes and colorectal cancer l.jpg
Diabetes and Colorectal Cancer

  • There is an association between Colorectal Cancer and diabetes, not enough evidence to call it causal

    • Continue to monitor the science

  • Link is not strong enough to warrant changing public health messages right now, including messages to both the public and providers

  • Screening for everyone 50 and older. Focusing on diabetics alone may be a confusing message

  • Emphasis on increasing access to Colorectal Cancer screening
