    Hello, please could I have some help! I am on Zolodex injections for breast cancer. One of the side effects appears to be a high sugar level. I am tired before I eat, get really tired if I eat something very sweet whether fruit, sweetner, sugar, chocolate. I am intermittently thirsty . I don't wee more, I haven't lost weight, my BMI is 25. Does anyone have any experience of this SE? I awaiting results from a HC something blood test and going to see my oncologist for a review. But I would like some understanding first. Thank you so much. Xx

    The HbA1c blood test will give you an idea of what your average blood sugars have been like over the past 2-3 months. I got this from drugs.com:
    • Zoladex may raise your blood sugar. High blood sugar may make you feel confused, drowsy, or thirsty. It can also make you flush, breathe faster, or have a fruit-like breath odor. If these symptoms occur, tell your doctor right away.
    Hope all goes well for you.
