Plain language Summary - Developing bowel cancer is more common in people who have diabetes and diabetes also increases your risk of kidney problems. This research will look at whether people who have both diabetes and bowel cancer are more likely to develop kidney problems after cancer surgery, compared to people without diabetes. The research will also look at whether the severity of a person’s diabetes affects whether they develop kidney problems after surgery. Understanding more about these issues could help improve the care and outcomes for patients who have both bowel cancer and diabetes. As the number of people being diagnosed with diabetes is increasing, these issues are of growing importance.
