Aim: We aimed to determine the effect of diabetes mellitus (DM) on survival in pancreatic cancer and effects of pancreatic cancer on glycemic control in DM. Materials & methods: Patients with pancreatic cancer from 2007 to 2015, with and without DM, were matched 1:1. We compared characteristics between the groups and assessed 2-year survival with Kaplan–Meier analysis.
