diabetes and colorectal cancer
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
