“Sudden weight loss and hyperglycemia (elevated blood sugar levels) not associated with diabetes should be on the lookout,” reports the portal, citing the results of a new British scientific study conducted by doctors from the universities of Surrey and Oxford.

In the course of the work, the experts analyzed the data of almost nine thousand people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The indicators of more than 34 thousand people without an adequate diagnosis were also evaluated.

It has been found that in people with pancreatic cancer, dramatic weight loss can be felt up to two years before the disease is diagnosed.

“Already at the time of diagnosis, the body mass index of the patients was on average three units lower than that of healthy people,” the journalists specified.

At the same time, the level of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in the patients increased approximately three years before diagnosis. One of the main risk factors for the disease is an unbalanced diet.

Previously, doctors warned: it is not necessary to eat fatty meat and animal fats so that the pancreas sooner or later makes itself felt. Also, pancreatitis and its exacerbation are often found in vegetarians.

“Plant foods can also be fatty: for example, nuts, seeds, vegetable oil, olives, avocados,” said gastroenterologist and hepatologist Sergei Vyalov. The doctor added that one should be careful with spicy food. Especially when combined with fermented foods.

“Many people rely on red pepper and spices that stimulate the stomach and pancreas,” said the specialist, adding that the addition of fermented foods promotes fermentation, which puts increased pressure on the pancreas, which is plagued with exacerbations of pancreatitis.
