First, check with your oncologist. They may be doing blood sugar tests monthly, with your regular bloodwork. Ours does.

Second, it's very likely you have borderline high blood sugar and if you don't, it's something that might develop later. What we found is, my mom has borderline high sugars but when she did the whole fasting test routine, it wasn't high enough to medicate. However, borderline high blood sugar contributes to weight loss, so it's something that is an issue for her. What we've come up with is for her to eat sweets right after a meal, not on an empty stomach. That slows the absorption of sugar, when your body is busy digesting fats and proteins. So if she wants a piece of candy, she has it after a meal. If she wants a cookie, she eats some cheese or some sort of protein snack first. This is working and keeping her numbers under control.
