Certain Chemotherapy Drugs Increase Risk of Heart Failure
A small study found that cancer patients with diabetes may suffer more heart damage from chemotherapy.
The study suggests that diabetes and chemo increase a patient's risk for heart failure.
According to the study's lead author, reports of chemotherapy's toxic effects on the heart are increasing.
Known as cardiotoxicity, the toxic effects from certain chemotherapy drugs will likely increase the burden of heart failure on cancer survivors.
But Dr. Ana Catarina Gomes stated the effects of cardiotoxicity can be reserved before heart failure develops.
