Does Blood Sugar Affect Breast Cancer Survival?

Does Blood Sugar Affect Breast Cancer Survival?

Hyperglycemic 33% Survival Rate
Normoglycemic 67% Survival Rate
Hypoglycemic 95% Survival Rate

Conclusion: Higher blood glucose yields shorter survival time in a dose-dependent response. Survival after 70 days was 8 of 24(hyper), 16 of 24 (normo) and 19 of 20 (hypo).

Study design: Mice were injected with aggressive breast cancer and then placed on 3 different diets to alter blood glucose.
