[ALERT] Two pancreatic cancer warning signs

No one wants to ever be diagnosed with the “C” word.

But unfortunately, the odds are sometimes stacked against us.

And when it comes to pancreatic cancer, the fight for your life is particularly immediate… and brutal.

So, let’s talk about TWO early warning signs of this dangerous disease.

Watch out for these distinct changes

Pancreatic cancer has one of the lowest five-year survival rates of ALL cancers—at just under 10 percent.

So, catching it as early as possible is crucial.

The U.K.’s National Cancer Research Institute recently looked at symptoms in nearly 25,000 men and women diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

And they noticed two very early symptoms:

  • Dark urine
  • Increased thirst

In fact, the patients with both pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), the most common form of pancreatic cancer, and pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PNEN), a rarer form, reported having these two symptoms up to ONE YEAR prior to receiving their diagnosis.

That’s a remarkable finding because it likely means these particular symptoms present much earlier…

When the cancer hasn’t yet metastasized (spread) to other organs.

Your best Defense

In addition to keeping those red flags in mind, let’s back up a little to talk about an effective strategy to keep cancer at bay.

As I’ve frequently shared over the years, vitamin D protects you against countless diseases—and that could include pancreatic cancer.

In a meta-analysis, researchers looked at vitamin D intake on pancreatic cancer risk in nearly 125,000 men and women over 16 years.

In short, participants answered questions about their diet and supplement use. And about 350 ultimately developed pancreatic cancer.

But there was a HUGE difference in risk between those who had the highest daily intake of vitamin D (about 15 mcg [600 IU] and those who had the lowest (less than 3.75 mcg [150 IU].

In fact, those with the highest intake had a 40 percent LOWER risk of ever developing pancreatic cancer compared to those with the lowest!

As always, I recommend getting your vitamin D blood levels checked every six months. I consider optimal levels to be between 80 and 100 ng/mL. In order to maintain those health-protective levels, I like to suggest supplementing with 250 mcg (10,000 IU) daily of vitamin D3.
