Well, another chapter to the story. My new chemo is making my blood sugars raise. So....my doctor put me on insulin on a sliding scale. If it's not up, no shot in the tummy. If it is, yippee!!! It was running between 265-300 the night before I went to the doctor. Today it has been fine. Thank God. Just wanted you to know what is going on now. Any of you have to take insulin because of the chemo you were taking causing your blood sugar to raise??? Thanks for your help. Love ya all.
Love and prayers, Judy(grandma047)

No, but it scares me that this will happen to me as diabetes runs in my family. The Dr. hasn't said anything to me yet, so I hope my blood sugar is ok. Thanks for bringing this up. I'm anxious to see what others might say. Take care Wanda

If you can let us know how things are going!!!!!!

Love, Prayers, and Hugs coming your way!!!!
