Type 2 Diabetes

Has anyone experienced type 2 diabetes as a result of taking letrozole? I was a 69 year old woman when diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020. My numbers were normal before treatment started. A year later my numbers had climbed to 7.6 and this year it is 9.1. I have read that women in their 60s and up can have increased sugar levels while taking letrozol. Has anyone else experienced this?

elle29‍ Which AI are you on that is lowering your blood sugars? I am letrozole and abemacaclib and I am getting 4-5 lows a day.. I think it is the abemacaclib since i started it 2 months ago and the letrozole in December. but apparently there is no link except one case, but the person was on diabetic drugs not insulin.
