Insulin potentiation therapy is an alternative cancer therapy that uses insulin to potentiate the effects of chemotherapy and other medications. Insulin potentiation therapy has not been shown to treat or prevent cancer. Insulin potentiation therapy involves administering insulin at the same time as chemotherapy drugs, with the idea that lower chemotherapy doses are then needed because insulin lets more of the drug enter cells. However, this theory has not been proven. In general, insulin should not be taken by non-diabetics because it can decrease blood sugar to dangerously low levels, causing symptoms such as headache and delirium. Advocates of IPT believe that cancer cells consume more sugar than healthy cells and are therefore more sensitive to insulin and insulin-like growth factor.
