Title   Evaluation of HbA1c in Oncology Patients Beginning Intravenous Treatment
Summary   The main purpose of this study is to identify the prevalence of diabetes, undiagnosed diabetes and pre-diabetes in cancer patients beginning intravenous therapy.
Description   Individuals with diabetes who develop cancer have a worse overall survival rate and are more likely to develop an infection or be hospitalized when compared to those without diabetes who develop cancer. Patients with diabetes and cancer who are receiving chemotherapy are also at risk for developing more issues with blood sugar levels. This study provides a baseline HbA1c and a repeat HbA1c at a specified interval.
