I looked it up and found this:

In part:

Quote

Patients have different reactions to treatments, and it is important for patients to be aware of their own bodies even before treatment begins.

Some cancer treatments can cause significant swings in blood glucose, thereby making their diabetes worse.

Remember, "aggravation" is a way to get service connected.  https://cck-law.com/blog/va-service-connection-aggravation/

As always, this doctor saying that it could make their diabetes worse, does not mean it made YOURs worse.  For that, you will need a medical opinion that YOUR cancer treatment caused, or made worse YOUR diabetes.
