Cancer death risk increases with chronic kidney disease

A new published study shows that those who suffer from cancer are more likely to die from their condition if their kidneys don’t function properly. The study showed that even a slight reduction in kidney function increases the death rate of a cancer patient. The study compared the mortality rate of cancer patients with reduced kidney function and normal kidney function. It was found that those with chronic kidney disease were 1.3 times more likely to die from cancer.
