Insulin potentiation therapy is also referred to as low dose chemotherapy. It is an alternative treatment that is used in the treatment of cancer. The therapy works by allowing chemotherapy to concentrate on cancer cells thereby reducing the amount of chemotherapy that is required for the treatment of cancer. This means that insulin is used in the treatment in order to make chemotherapy more effective. Insulin is able to do this because cancer cells are great receptors of insulin. Insulin potentiation therapy is very beneficial as it greatly reduces the side effects of chemo. In as much as this therapy is very beneficial to cancer patients, it is not without side effects. Some of the side effects of insulin potentiation therapy is hypoglycemia. The use of this therapy tends to cause low blood sugar in patients.
