Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time. After a bilateral mastectomy, I started chemotherapy. My blood sugar had been on the high side before, but not dangerously. However, after starting chemo, my blood sugar shot sky high and stayed there in spite of Metformin, Actos, and a couple of other drugs the doc tried me on.

I'm now on insulin 4 times a day.

I wonder if anyone else has run into the problem of blood sugar going way out of reason during and after chemo. It's like not only did the chemo kill the cancer, it also killed my pancreas!
