Oh boy, in the past I probably could have eaten the frosting and left the cake. I loved cookies, ice cream and everything sweet. Talk about a sweet tooth! I wonder if that was an omen for having high blood sugar readings now! But, I've never experienced what you have, bedwedge, that everything tastes sweet. Well, bananas do taste sweet anyway to me, but I've never heard of anyone experiencing all food tasting sweet. I've never heard of it being associated with diabetes but I'm not an expert. It might be a good idea to see your doctor to have some tests run. Good luck.

ANYWAY...the gist of the article I was trying to link people to indicates that a primary symptom of Lung Cancer is "everything tastes sweet". They had a particular medical terminology for this which escapes me, but this would be consistent with the mass on your relative's lungs!

I had a few roasted peanuts today and they tasted very sweet. After giving up sugar I can tase sweetness in many things.
