Having diabetes can sometimes complicate cancer treatment. We have written an information booklet for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and also has diabetes. It explains how cancer treatments can affect a person’s diabetes and make it difficult for them to control their blood sugar. We have produced this information in partnership with Diabetes UK.
The booklet also includes tips to help people cope with the side effects of cancer treatment when coping with diabetes too.
