  • Increased Glucose levels

    I am wondering if anyone can offer any insight or experience with this one. The urologist and oncologist both seemed not to care.

    My husbands glucose levels have been increasing every month, since September. 98, 114, 118 and on 12/26/06 150. I supposed you could say it could be based off of his diet. Yet his diet isn't changing, he eats the same things he always does, yet his glucose has increased.

    I did read a study that showed active cancer can increase glucose levels, but it was only one study and it wasn't with testicular cancer.
