I have been a member for ten years, diet controlled with some success. Now I have breast cancer and am undergoing chemotherapy. The doctors seem very confident that it’s early stage and they can fix it. The chemo includes steroids, and my word, they sent my bloods over 30! Following panicky visits to A&E they told me I was safe and to go home ( they deemed me more at risk from hospital admission due to Covid precautions) and talk to my doctor on Monday. Within days the community insulin team had me on single dose Humulin, and are gradually increasing it and bringing my numbers down, into the teens. The problem is the chemotherapy makes it necessary to eat small frequent high calorie, easily digested and palatable snacks, to avoid nausea and keep the gut working, to protect it. I have no idea about how the insulin works with diet. Do I try to eat like a diet controlled type2, or do I eat a normal diet and not consider carbs? Are smoothies still a no no? Because they soothe my chemo damaged mouth. Any advice welcome.
