Diabetes and ADT

Recommended Posts

Does prostate cancer progress faster for advanced patients with diabetes on ADT?   


The good news is that diabetes doesn't affect the time to castrate-resistance or the time to death.


However, diabetes may speed up the time to metastases


Advanced patients on ADT who don't have diabetes may get diabetes as a side effect of ADT.  


Bottom line: patients on ADT should do whatever is necessary to avoid or control diabetes.
