I was at City of Hope yesterday and my AML is not back. My plattlet cunt is 108 which is very low. The average is 154 so I am not operating in that zone. My Cancer meds keep them lower then normal and make me Diabetic.
I do not know much about this desease I just know that I didn't need it to show up with my cancer.

Tough news to learn and deal with while fighting cancer. Hopefully by learning how to control Diabetes it will improve your body's ability to fight the cancer better. Also as the cancer gets taken care of its affect on your diabetese should decrease.
I understand your frustration. Was fighting a couple other battles at the time I learned I have diabetes. While my Drs. concentrated on treating the more life threating conditions, they did not ignore the diabetese. It just added another difficulty for them to figure in.
