Diet and insulin resistance in survivors of childhood leukemia (2014)


Diet and insulin resistance in survivors of childhood leukemia

Project Description:

Many adult survivors of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) become obese and develop insulin resistance, but it is not clear why. In this study the investigators will collect dietary questionnaires and blood to look for connections between diet and insulin resistance that might be different in ALL survivors compared to people without a history of cancer. This work may lead to dietary recommendations for ALL survivors that would improve their health and longevity.
