Brief Answer:
About high glucose level;

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Infections or allergic reactions treated with corticosteroids may be a cause of temporary increase in blood sugar.
But you should check the HbA1c level to be sure that the raise in blood glucose is temporary.
If the HbA1c is under 6.5% it means that is very probable that the blood glucose will get back to previous levels.
Anyway you should keep monitoring it. If it persists high, inform your physician to start treatment.
Hope the information will help.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta

I've been diagnosed with streptococcus virdan. I've taken several medications such as levaquin, cipro, bactrim, doxycline and many more. The levaquin started working but I quit taking it because I felt better and now I've been having this problem for six years due to the fact I stopped taking my medication. About a year ago, a doctor did a semen culture and I was positive for virdan. He prescribed me penicillin and of course it didn't do anything. Do you have any suggestions of what I need to do because this has been and ongoing process forever

Thank you. I have been struggling for 14 yrs. with different infections. My uterous ruptured with the birth of my sec son. I developed a staff infection at the hospital. I have had many flair-ups. I have seen so many doctors in the past who always just treated me for whatever was going on that seemed like a quick fix. The worst part is that I was getting MANY UTI's. So...I found a way on my own to help my immune system. I have done my own research. My infections went away for about 5 yrs while I was using a very potent antioxidant formula. Now my problem is coming back with UTIs. The bacteria they discovered was entero bacter aerogenens. I think my doctor wants to send me to a Urologist, but I think that may be a waste of time because if it is systemic, that probably won't help. This problem has really affected my life more than anyone can know. I currently have a UTI, but they switched my antibiotic to Levaquin because that is the only one to kill that bacteria. It will keep coming back unless I receive proper treatment. What do you suggest I do from here? Allison

I was recently in the last month treated for pluerisy twice with an antibiotic. I finished the antibiotics and still wasn t feeling good so my dr prescribed levaquin,he told me to take it only if I started running a fever because I have a viral infection. Well I just started using the antibiotic today because I am running a fever, well I feel really crappy still and I was wondering if it was a good idea to start that levaquin even though I don t have a bacterial infection. I am just tired of beins sick fot the last two months. I am going on a trip next week fot 10days and I just want to feel better.
