Diabetes Link To Liver Cancer

According to research, diabetes are a major contributing factor to liver cancer 

According to American Cancer Society, type 2 diabetes plays a huge roll in the development of liver cancer. Risk factors increase in patients who are diagnosed with hepatitis and have a habit of heavy alcohol consumption. In addition to the diabetes, over-weight patients increase their risk- as obesity also shows a strong link to developing  liver cancer.

Compared to those without diabetes, research suggest those diagnosed with type 2 diabetes present around two to three times greater risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma- which is the most common type of liver cancer.

The IvyGene Liver test has the ability to confirm the presence of liver cancer as early as stage 1. Providing measurable information about liver cancer, the IvyGene liver cancer test is extremely beneficial for the at risk population. 

The IvyGene Liver test analyzes methylation ratios at specific gene targets to confirm the presence of liver cancer. Those gene targets were identified through AI and Next-Generation Sequencing technology, which decoded the human genome to produce specific gene targets for analysis.
