I'm sorry, but I have no clue about the radiation and blood sugar issues. What does your oncologist say? Better yet, have a chat with one of the office nurses. I'll bet they've run into this before and will have some suggestions. Good luck with this.

Are you on Casodex by any chance? My husband's blood sugar went out of control after he started using Casodex. The Casodex works too well to discontinue it, so we're trying to figure out how to control the diabetes in other ways.
Dutchy's husband:
 7/6: PSA 1,946, multiple bone metastases in thoracic, lumbar spine, pelvis, bilateral ribs and proximal left tibia, 2 weeks Casodex (50 mg)
25/6: PSA 407, Lupron injection (22.5 mg) + Zometa (4 mg IV)
20/8: PSA 3,7
24/9: Started 50 mg Casodex daily
29/9: PSA 0.7
30/9: Lupron injection (22.5 mg) + Zometa (4 mg IV)
14/10: PSA 0.17
18/13: PSA 0.003, Lupron injection (22.5 mg), Testosteron 0.6
