Chemo seems to dramatically raise my mom's blood sugar level. Example: right before the chemo her blood sugar level was 70, and right after the chemo, it had shot up to 130! Is this a common phenomenon? This is frustrating, because we've been trying to keep her blood sugar level low, as there is a theory that cancer cells primarily feed on glucose (sugar). My mom is not diabetic, but I can imagine for diabetics who are also undergoing chemotherapy, this must be very challenging.
