    RE: High blood sugar

    What diseases (besides diabetes) cause high blood sugar?

    What other conditions cause high blood sugar? Other conditions that can cause high blood sugar are pancreatitis, Cushing's syndrome, unusual hormone-secreting tumors, pancreatic cancer, certain medications, and severe illnesses.


    Talk to your diabetes specialist. Some cancers can increase insulin resistance. Also, medications you could be taking to treat your bladder cancer (ie. steroids) could contribute to your problems controlling blood sugar, too.
