I haven't had radiotherapy, (currently on steroids, HT and chemo), but back in February, when I was first diagnosed, (out of the blue), with Advanced PCa, I was was also told that I too had developed diabetes with a score of 49.
Since that time I have completely changed my diet, no red meat, no processed food, no alcohol, and recently I've also cut out most dairy products, and do loads of walking.
To date I've lost 2 1/2 stone, which was needed, and I have reduced my diabetes count to 40, (i.e. No diabetes treatment/ tablets required).
Ps I start my 4th round of hormone injections next week with my third round of chemo the week after, and todate other than a few days of extreme fatigue I seem to be coping with it all?? In fact if I'm honest, if it wasnt for all what's going on inside me with the APCa, bone mets etc. then I havent felt fitter in ages!!!!!! Long may it reign???
There's a load of us on that bloody roller-coaster----so just hang on!!!!!!
