Diabetes, body mass index, and outcomes in hepatocellular carcinoma patients undergoing liver transplantation
Body Mass Index
Our findings suggest a relationship between higher BMI, tumor vascular invasion, increased recurrence, and worsened overall survival. These findings may help explain why those with high BMI have worse outcomes from their cancers. A better understanding of the role of obesity and diabetes in patients with cancer should help develop better predictors of outcome and improved treatment options for patients with HCC.
