Abstract

The increasing number of patients suffering from diabetes mellitus, the increasing prevalence and improving detectability of cancer and the mutual aetiological and pathogenetic interrelations between diabetes mellitus and cancer necessitate the development of management guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of abnormalities of glucose metabolism in this group of patients. Based on experimental and clinical studies and our own experience we have drawn up simple guidelines for oncologists aimed to facilitate the management of cancer patients with co-existent abnormalities of glucose metabolism.
