Can multiple myeloma cause diabetes?

Multiple myeloma itself doesn’t directly cause diabetes. However, some treatments for multiple myeloma, especially corticosteroids like prednisone or dexamethasone, can elevate blood sugar levels and induce diabetes or worsen pre-existing diabetes. Regularly monitoring blood sugar and consultations with endocrinologists may be needed when receiving such treatments. It is essential for patients to be aware of this potential side effect and manage it proactively.
