Surviving Pancreatic Cancer: Beatriz's Story
Advanced Pancreatic cancer survivors Abstract Background: Meat intake has been associated with risk of exocrine pancreatic cancer, but previous findings have been inconsistent. This association has been attributed to both the fat and cholesterol content of meats and to food preparation methods.

Our uniquely designed platform effortlessly collects critical symptoms and side effects data. By sharing this data inside the social network directly with other patients, you will receive the social support you need.
We analyzed data from the pancreatic cancer survivors Multiethnic Cohort Study to investigate associations between intake of meat, other animal products, fat, and cholesterol and pancreatic cancer risk. Methods: During 7 years of follow-up, incident pancreatic cancers occurred in cohort members.
Dietary intake was assessed using a quantitative food frequency questionnaire. Associations for foods and pancreatic cancer survivors relative to total energy intake were determined by Cox proportional hazards models stratified by gender and time on study and adjusted pancreatic cancer survivors age, smoking status, history of diabetes mellitus and familial pancreatic cancer, ethnicity, and energy intake.
Statistical tests were two-sided. The age-adjusted yearly incidence rates per persons for the respective quintiles were There were no associations of pancreatic cancer risk with intake of poultry, fish, dairy products, eggs, total fat, saturated fat, or cholesterol.
Intake of total and saturated fat from meat was associated with pancreatic cancer survivors significant increases in pancreatic cancer risk but that from dairy products was not. Conclusion: Red and processed meat intakes were associated with an increased risk of pancreatic cancer. Fat and saturated fat are not likely to contribute to the underlying carcinogenic mechanism because the findings for fat from meat and dairy products differed.
Whipple pancreaticoduodenectomy PD is the standard procedure for cephalopancreatic neoplasm. After an extended resection and reconstruction of superior gastrointestinal tract the digestive physiology might be heavily disrupted. A literature review of metabolic alterations of patients who suffered a major pancreatic resection is performed, regarding micronutrients, lipid absorption and pancreatogenic diabetes. Long-term survivors following PD generally have a satisfactory nutritional status although with subclinical iron, vitamin D and selenium deficiency.
Carcinogenic substances related to meat preparation methods might be responsible for the positive association.
