Is medication necessary for elevated blood glucose levels when diagnosed with an infection?
About Diabetes treatment;
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through your concern.
You should know that to judge better about Diabetes control , HbA1c is of help.
It gives more details about the blood glucose levels of the last three months ( not only fasting but postprandial too). If it is under 7%, there is no need for treatment.
Of course an infection is considered a ''stressful '' situation and the blood glucose raises , but it is not problematic when it is only for some days.
If fasting glucose persists over 125 dl or HbA1c is over 7% , I would recommend to start treatment.
Hope the information will help.
