Jan, I don't think having to take enzymes means you are diabetic. I had Whipple surgery, and as a result I am diabetic, but can control with diet and exercise. Simple blood tests at your doctors office will show any evidence of diabetes, although I admit many doctors get distracted with other things treating PC and don't test. If may help relieve your worries to go to your local pharmacy and get one of the store brand (like TrueTrak) glucose meters. You should be able to get one with a small supply of test strips for around $50.00. Check your blood sugar against the ranges listed in the booklet that comes with it. Then, if you find it is running high, you can contact your doctor with your concerns. Re. sweating after eating sweets. In my case, this happens when I get low blood sugar, which happens when I eat too many carbs (sweets) and my blood sugar goes high, and then comes down quickly. Reactions are different for different people though.
